From 1987 through 1989, overall mortality among Baltimore residents aged 25-44 years increased from 380.7 deaths per 100,000 residents to 452.6 deaths per 100,000, reflecting the substantial impact of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). To better characterize this increase in mortality, the Baltimore City Health Department analyzed information on death certificates from the Baltimore City Bureau of Vital Statistics for persons aged 25-44 years for 1987-1989. This report summarizes the analysis and characterizes HIV-infection/AIDS-related deaths among residents of Baltimore in this age group.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
