METHODS In this study, two sources of data, the AIDS surveillance registry and NYC death certificates, were used to analyze geographic and demographic patterns of AIDS in NYC. Borough-specific incidence trends were assessed using the surveillance registry; mortality rates in small geographic units (health districts) were obtained from death certificates. Together these data provide a comprehensive picture of AIDS epidemiology in NYC. Surveillance data, collected since 1981, are the major source of demographic and patient risk information on cases of AIDS in adults (patients aged 13 years and older) in NYC.

The first four questions solicited basic information on age, sex, marital status, and number of children. 8% were engaged. 9% knew of someone (neighbor, acquaintance, relative, student, etc) with AIDS or who had died of AIDS. Results for the five questions that elicited perceptions of risk associated with a variety of activities are shown in Table I. 1 % TABLE I. 1 rating this risk as low, very low, or none. 8% rating this risk as low, very low, or none. 4% responded that performing a physical examination carried a very high, high, or moderate risk.
