  • Table 6-1 This table shows the estimate of total HIV incidence that occurred in Texas in 2014. HIV Incidence differs from new diagnoses in that it is meant to estimate all newly acquired infections in a given time period, including those not yet diagnosed. The 95% confidence interval presented next to the count estimate represents the most likely range of values where the true number of incident infections lies.

  • The largest number of incident infections are estimated to have occurred in MSM. The high number of new infections in Hispanic MSM likely reflects the growing proportion of Texas' Hispanic population (40% in 2015).

  • The highest rate of new infections is estimated to occur in Black Texans and young persons age 25-34.
