The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Jezari, Arianna & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This paper discusses research on the geography of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Harris County, Texas from 1999-2003. Abstract: This research examines the geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas and the factors associated with areas of high prevalence. Zip code-level prevalence rates obtained from the Texas State Department of Health for 1999-2003 is the dependent variable, while education, race/ethnicity, and income taken from the 2000 Census are used as explanatory variables with Spearman's rank correlation analysis. The results suggest that race/ethnicity, level of education, and income have significant relationships with the HIV rate in Harris County Zip codes. Zip codes with a high percentage of African Americans, a high percentage of adults with an education level of eighth grade or less, and a high percentage of people with income below the poverty line, tend to have higher HIV rates.

Pediatric  and Maternal HIV in Texas Border Counties and Urban Area

Pediatric and Maternal HIV in Texas Border Counties and Urban Area

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Ho, Jessie & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This paper examines the geography of pediatric HIV, HIV in women, and age at diagnosis of women in the Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex, Houston-Galveston Area, and the colonias of Texas-Mexico border counties using the human ecology model. In addition, the study investigates the correlation of female HIV rates and female age at diagnosis with pediatric HIV. County-level morbidity data from the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) from 1980-2009 are analyzed. Pediatric HIV and HIV in women have a strong positive correlation. The border counties have lower rates of HIV than do the urban areas, and have the youngest age at diagnosis, but have a higher pediatric HIV rate than Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex. Interventions should target preventing HIV in females.
