Bacterial STD, chlamydia, gonorrhea, congenital syphilis, early syphilis, infectious syphilis and total syphilis data are updated each year from 2006 to the most recent reporting year to ensure a case has not been counted more than once. This update is necessary because duplicate cases may occur when persons with a sexually transmitted disease diagnosis move to a different county, state or country.
Annually, the proportion of records with unknown attributes are as follows: unknown age 0.01%; unknown sex 0.13%; unknown race 21%; unknown ethnicity 23%. Exact counts are available by clicking "Unknown Race/Ethnicity/Sex Cases" link. Unknown cases are not included in rate calculation.
This is primary, quantitative data.
Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.
