Notes:

1. Data are from a UK wide dataset and represent first AIDS diagnoses in the UK within English SHAs. Data are cumulative data to the end of December 2007. Numbers will rise as further reports are received.

2. Cell counts under five are masked by replacing the number with <5 to protect against deductive disclosure of an individual patient's identity.

3. SHAs are those of diagnosis and not of residence. There is evidence that a large proportion of individuals are diagnosed outside of their SHA of residence.
