NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/ethnicity comparisons. See Table 33 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 25-27 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. For the following years, the states listed did not report age or race/ethnicity for most cases, and their case data and population denominators were excluded: 2007 (Idaho) and 2009 (Nebraska, Wyoming). Differences between total cases from this table and others in the report are due to different reporting formats and above listed exclusions. 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.
