Data collected by CDC data registry. Adults infected with virus from contaminated blood transfusion in April 1978. Event time is the induction time from HIV infection to AIDS. Infection time is time from blood transfusion to HIV infection. Data left truncated because only subjects who develop AIDS after 1982 are unobserved (as HIV unknown before 1982). Data also right truncated because cases reported after July 1, 1986 are not included in the sample to avoid inconsistent data and bias from reporting delay.
This data frame contains the following columns:
Months between HIV infection and development of AIDS (event time of interest)
Indicator of adult (1=adult,0=child)
Months from blood transfusion date (Apr 1,1978) to HIV infection
Left truncation time: 45 - infection time
Right truncation time: Left truncation time + 54 months
Indicator of event occurrence, which is set to 1 since all subjects experience the event
