NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/ethnicity comparisons. See Table 31 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 24, 25, 26 for total and sex-specific cases and rates. If age or race/ethnicity was not specified, cases were prorated according to the distribution of cases for which these variables were specified. Differences between total rates from this table and others in the report are due to different reporting formats and above listed exclusion. The 0 to 9 year age group is not shown because some of these cases may not be due to sexual transmission; however, they are included in the totals.
