As reported by Rosenberg et al., these estimates can be used with county prevalence data available on AIDSVu.org to calculate state and county-level HIV prevalence rates among MSM.  Consistent with the Rosenberg et al. study, Emory CAMP discourages users from publishing HIV diagnosis rates from counties with fewer than 100 estimated MSM.
