Annual estimates were produced for the HIV mortality rate and number of deaths due to HIV by sex and age group in the 0-80+ year range at the municipality level in six countries in Latin America: Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Ecuador. The estimates cover from 2000 to 2017 in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico; from 2009 to 2017 in Guatemala; from 2004 to 2014 in Ecuador; and from 2014 to 2016 in Costa Rica. Input data sources consisted of vital registration (VR) mortality data — anonymized individual-level records from all deaths reported in each country’s VR system occurring between the years of study.

This dataset includes the following:

  • CSV files of estimates of the HIV mortality rate and the number of HIV deaths by age group and sex for each country at zero, first, and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
  • The shapefile used to inform the estimates
