Gender differences in an HIV-infected population living in downstate Illinois are examined. Depression is measured using the CES-D screening tool. Statistical tests are run on both quantitative and qualitative data in order to determine if a gender difference exists. The difference in CES-D scores was not found to be statistically significant. Possible explanations for this finding are suggested. These explanations include: population demographics, small sample size, and effects of medication.
