Table 1 Calculated and estimated data for survey-surveillance discrepancies and MSM population size in 38 countries of Europe (see also Additional file 1 : Table S1)

From: Estimating the size of the MSM populations for 38 European countries by calculating the survey-surveillance discrepancies (SSD) between self-reported new HIV diagnoses from the European MSM internet survey (EMIS) and surveillance-reported HIV diagnoses among MSM in 2009

Country code SSD calculated by SSD=1.67* [household internet access] ^-0.6 Npop calculated with SSD Percent of the adult male population (Ntot) represented by Npop (=M) Npop with truncation for outliers <1% and >3%1(suggested “best” estimate)

  1. 1 calculated Npop values below 1% and above 3% of the adult male population are substituted by 1% resp. 3% of the adult male population.
  2. * adjusted for risk re-distribution of cases with unknown transmission risk.
  3. Bold, questionable or unreliable values.
  4. Italics, SSD value likely too low (or too high: BE, FR).
