Part One: Descriptive Epidemiology

The data set selected for analysis is that of HIV. It presents the prevalence of HIV/AIDS among 359 cases by among other things, gender, ethnicity, city of residence, state, age, and sexual orientation.

Place: the highest occurrence of HIV/AIDS is reported in the City of Atlanta, which accounts for 47.5 percent of HIV/AIDS cases among the 359 cases. The second-highest occurrence is reported in College Park at 8.93 percent, followed by Alpharetta at 7.27 percent. The lowest HIV/AIDS occurrence is reported in Hapeville and Johns Creek, both of which report a prevalence rate less than 2 percent. Fig 1 below presents the frequency table showing the frequency of viral load by city of residence. The visual representation of viral load by city is presented in the pie chart labeled as Chart 1.
