Literal Question

PS_12. Have you ever been tested for HIV? Include testing fluids and saliva, or spit from your mouth.

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.
