Dataset: The Health of Houston Survey 2010

Variable hiv_scrn: HIV screening

Literal Question

Q19. Have you ever been tested for HIV? Include testing fluid/saliva/spit from your mouth. Do not count tests you may have had as part of a blood donation.

Descriptive Text

The variable is calculated to show the percentage of respondents who comply with Healthy People 2020 recommendations to be tested for HIV in the past year. Included were respondents ages 18-44 to most closely match the Healthy People 2020 recommendations of 15-44 years old. This question was not asked of children ages 15-17 and therefore was not included in the calculation.
