Notes

Abstract: According to the CDC, 63% of all new HIV diagnoses and 69% of all new AIDS diagnoses in 2009 were among the 25-49 year age group. While previous studies have examined the relationship between HIV/AIDS and a variety of socio-economic variables, no work has been done looking at this specific age group that constitutes a majority of new HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the recent past. Specifically, the author examines the relationships between HIV/AIDS outcomes in Texas and unemployment, education, income, and race/ethnic groups using data aggregated at the county level. Significant correlations where found between HIV/AIDS and unemployment, education, and race/ethnic groups. No significant association was found between HIV/AIDS and income. For future public intervention efforts targeting ages 25-49, a combination of variables, including unemployment, education, and race/ethnicity should be taken into consideration, rather than using only information on income.
