The 10 States With The Highest Aids/HIV Rate (Is Your State On The List?)

 

Illinois #8


37,592 Diagnosed Cases

288 Diagnosed under the age of 13

Total

37,880

Many who were surprised Chicago, Illinois didn’t make the list for Top 10 Worst Cities won’t be surprised that it made this list. With Chicago contributing close to 72% of Illinois’ HIV/Aids rate; it is safe to say that Illinois is a state that needs to work on a little bit of everything.

    Im a naitive of Cali and I am suprised my state made no.2 . I am married so this sobering reality doesn’t effect me but to all the single people be careful. I guess with the vibe in Cali being so liberal this is to be expected.

    • livinginreality

      Get real. Just because you’re in a marriage doesn’t mean you’re safe from any infections. Stop living in a bubble. AIDS can happen to anyone at anytime if you’re not using wise judgement.

    I guess the Big Apple has worms in it.

    • Twinkle*

      STRAP UP!!

  • samech

    I would have never guess NJ & Texas. I am NOT surprised that NY is #1. I get tested once a year and I am not even in a relationship..so I know they are not talking about me…(I work in NYC, live in NJ)

  • GG

    I am married as well, lets just say that I hope my husband wont ever disrespect me and put me in a position to give me a deadly disease. I am smart enough to know that it takes two responsible people to combat this disease.

  • M3@9@N

    Y florida gotta be number three man… All the poppin states. New york been on heh an cali smh… Texas a bummer… I stayed in Jersey for a summer. Its alotta puerto ricans. Btw Smh Puerto Rico bein on the list. Just messed up.

  • Can

    If Puerto Rico can be on the list I’m kind of surprised D.C. wasn’t included with all the stuff we hear/read about their HIV/AIDS problems…

  • yeahright

    Dumb list! They are going by population so of course New York, FL, TX, and Cali are at the top. They need to go by per capita and I’m sure places like Louisiana will be right up there. This is not accurate…bunch of ghetto folks did this.

  • yeahright

    If they did this by per capita which is how you get a more accurate view of stats, places like D.C., South Carolina, Louisiana would all possibly be at the top. That is how they determine who has the highest crime rates why and places not named New York, Cali, FL, and TX who obvioulsy have higher populations never come out on top of those lists cause its not based strictly on population. Obvioulsy if you did based every stat purely on population those 4 states alone would be on top of everything thing. It has to be done by per capita to account for areas with a smaller population in order to get a more accurate view. Don’t read to much into this.

  • kerry

    Look at the population difference. The population for New York is in the millions while these others cities probably don’t hit 1,000,000. New York is UNFAIRLY on that list. The same with the crime stats. NY could have 500 murders in one year but some place with 20 murders will take #1 on crime lists. It all has to do with population so these lists are very misleading.

  • Nia

    Is it ok for a person to be promiscuous as long as they use condoms…each and every time? Or are they endangering their life?

  • http://bossip Gat Turner BUDDDDDDAATTT!!!

    iTS A DAMN SHAME TO POST AN ARTICLE LIKE THIS TO LEFT OF SOME SCANILY KLAAD SISTAHS POSING!

    tALK ABOUT ATTACK ON THE SUB-CONCIOUS MIND!

  • NelGCarter

    True studies are conducted wrong but look at it this way they just got to the must people point blank period their people go downplaying AIDS again. Its a serious epidemic and there is nothing stopping it from crossing any borders

  • De

    With all this, I would rather just jackoff lol, u can’t catch anything from your hand lmao…naw but seriously be careful about who you sleep with, use protection, and don’t sleep with random ppl. That’s safer.

  • http://borinboy.wordpress.com borinboy

    WOW california is truly missed up too many problems

  • Tapsy

    This is crazy and scary at the same time. HIV/AIDS is taking over and im starting to question if theres anyway we can stop the growing numbers. People get in relationships and start trusting their significant other and condom use is just not there anymore. I don’t know!!

  • koffybrown

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!! Well I see have Texas can be #4 Aus,Dal,Hou are all combined…well anyway good to know.Just be careful people.

  • Tyrhonius

    If you rank them by per capita (cases per 100,000 population, 2008 figures) then you get a Top 10 list you’d much more likely expect (though Delaware did surprise me):

    District of Columbia – 93.0
    Florida – 26.0
    Louisiana – 24.0
    New York – 23.5
    Puerto Rico – 20.7
    Georgia – 19.7
    New Jersey – 17.6
    Delaware – 16.8
    South Carolina – 15.0
    California – 13.2

    Im From Baltimore,..Kinda Sad But I Believe This,…

  • isaac

    I hate to label people like leopard but it must be done because it is like a concealed weapon.. get universal health care and test as part of enrollment. Then have a small symbol in a hidden area like a percent tattoo… then require resting every year. And why are we not drug testing for welfare… that’s just stupid… America seems to have lost its morals. The church has great set of of them but they lost touch with the times because they busy invading individual rights and judging while being the biggest hypocrites ever. God help America..and that means whatever God u believe in by the way. I could go on forever because I am a die hard patriot but what good would it do.

  • god’slittleangel

    Wow this is very disturbing and upsetting. Nother only with the rise of hiv/aids ,but the kids whom have fallen victim to it. It really tears me up just to see this and read. We really need something to open our eyes. And this should be it!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DAYWALKER (THE DAYDREAM!!!!)
