AIDS Among Adult-Movie Actors

I currently maintain a Smartphone application which follows the diseases and deaths of all famous persons (VIP’s). [1] Primary sources include biographies, anthologies, nationally-published obituaries and relevant Internet sites. The first VIP death ascribed to AIDS was recorded in 1982. AIDS is listed as the cause of death in 302 (3.06%) of 9,873 VIP’s who died during 1982 to July 2012. These figures include 33 of 1,511 movie actors (2.18%) and 71 of 171 adult-film actors (41.5%). Although publication bias and other sampling errors could contribute to these differences, the risk for AIDS among adult-film actors is obvious.
