Notes

Abstract: HIV/AIDS has become a growing concern for major metropolitan areas in the United States such as Dallas, Texas. This research seeks to understand the spatial distribution of HIV in Dallas County zip codes and the factors associated with areas of high concentration. Zip code level reports of HIV/AIDS from the Texas Department of Health from 1999-2003 are used as the dependent variable. Education, ethnicity, and income data 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 are significant determinants of the HIV rate in Dallas County. Neighborhoods with a higher percentage of African-American or Hispanic residents, a high percentage of the population with educational attainment of ninth grade or less, or a lower median household income tend to have higher HIV rates. Because HIV/AIDS is not uniformly distributed through zip codes in Dallas County, establishing a clear perception of risk areas for HIV in a large metropolitan area will ensure effective and efficient HIV prevention interventions.
