Figure 2

Rates of tuberculosis (TB) for persons with HIV/AIDS, California, USA, 1993–2008. Shaded areas represent 95% bootstrap percentile CIs, by race. Because TB–HIV was low among Asians/Pacific Islanders, trends could not be interpreted with precision. Annual state HIV prevalence was estimated through nonparametric back-calculation on the basis of racial/ethnic group–specific counts of reported AIDS cases and reported AIDS-related deaths during 1981–2008 (online Technical Appendix, wwwnc.cdc.gov/EID/a

TB–HIV rates for Asians/Pacific Islanders could not be calculated because of small numbers of cases during some years. Annual state HIV prevalence was estimated through nonparametric back-calculation on the basis of racial/ethnic group–specific counts of reported AIDS cases and reported AIDS-related deaths during 1981–2008 (online Technical Appendix, wwwnc.cdc.gov/EID/article/19/3/12-1521-Techapp1.pdf).
