Figure 2

Levels of marriage and secondary education among men in urban areas in eight southern African countries.

Estimates are for men aged 17–43 years (in Botswana, ages 14–48 years) in the years 2000–2006, chosen to maximize the overlap of temporal range between surveys and the age groups that contribute most to HIV transmission. All those with any secondary education were counted as having secondary education. “Married” category does not include those who were cohabiting but not married. Sources: DHS surveys performed in the years indicated in the legend, with the exception of Botswana (using the methodologically similar Botswana AIDS Impact Survey, 2001).
