NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/ethnicity comparisons. The 0- to 9-year age group is not shown because some of these cases may not be due to sexual transmission, and they are not included in the totals. In 2010, race/ethnicity was unknown (i.e., unknown, missing, or invalid data values) for 2.5% of reported primary and secondary syphilis cases, age was unknown for 0.0% of cases, and sex was unknown for 0.1% of cases. See Table 34 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 26-28 for total and sex-specific cases and rates.
