Rates of Persons Living with Diagnosed HIV, AIDSvu (2017)

This interactive map from AIDSvu shows the rates of people living with diagnosed HIV. The map can be viewed at the city, county, or state level, and it allows for filtering based on age, race, sex (although only male/ female), mode of transmission, and a number of social determinants of health. Some of the most significant highlights from the map include:

• Two-thirds of all new HIV diagnoses in 2015 occurred in 2.5% of U.S. counties;
• The Southern U.S. makes up nearly 37% of the population, but it accounts for 52% of HIV diagnoses and 49% of deaths among people diagnosed with HIV;
• Black Americans make up 12% of the population but accounted for 45% of all new HIV diagnoses in 2015; and
• New diagnoses among youth (13-24) increased by 2 percent in 2015.

AIDSvu also provides supplementary resources about HIV on its website.
