HIV in Prisons (2005)
Laura M. Maruschak (au)
On Dec. 31, 2005, 20,888 State inmates (1.8%) and 1,592 Fed. inmates (1.0%) were infected with HIV or had confirmed AIDS. Half of the HIV/AIDS cases were in the South, nearly a third in the Northeast, and about a tenth in both the Midwest and the West. At year-end 2005, three states — NY (4,440), FL (3,396), and TX (2,400) — housed nearly half (49%) of all HIV/AIDS cases in State prisons. At year-end 2005, an estimated 18,953 males (1.8%) and 1,935 females (2.4%) in State prisons were HIV-infected or had confirmed AIDS. The number of cases for both males and females were down from 2004. Among Fed. inmates, 1,491 men (1.0%) and 101 women (0.9%) were HIV-infected or had confirmed AIDS. Tables and graphs.
