Notes: 1. Ranges are provided where one or more cells have a count under five. This is done to remove the possibility of deductive disclosure of an individual's identity. For the same reason, data are provided by age group rather than specific age. 2. Cumulative data are as reported by the end of June 2007. Numbers will rise as further reports are received (particularly for more recent years). 3. Data will include many individuals who have been infected with HIV outside the UK, but who have been subsequently diagnosed in the UK. Source: Health Protection Agency.
