Scope :
This report was first published in 1995 by the HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Program of the Seattle-King County Department of Public Health. Its publication was part of a nationwide effort, strongly promoted and supported by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to provide community prevention planning groups with local epidemiology data. The data in turn was to be used to create prevention and education programs that would reduce the spread of HIV in Seattle-King County. The report supplemented, and drew upon, the department's HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Report (Series 1770) but was targeted towards an audience of city and county governments, community-based organizations, health care planners, and educators. After 2013, the community profiles were jointly published with the epidemiology report. Data sources included AIDS case reporting, HIV-related diseases studies, local and state HIV serosurveys, HIV counseling and texting data, sexually transmitted disease reporting, teenage pregnancy statistics, health and risk behavior surveys, the US Census and other demographic and geographic population data. This series includes profiles from 1996 to 2008 and is arranged chronologically. Available in digital format, 1999 and later, at http://www.kingcounty.gov/healthservices/health/communicable/hiv/epi/profile.aspx. First published report (1995) is held by the University of Washington Libraries.
