Figure O. Gonorrhea — Rate Ratios by Race/Ethnicity and Region, United States, 2012
* Rate ratios are calculated as the gonorrhea rate per 100,000 population for a given racial or ethnic minority population divided by the gonorrhea rate per 100,000 population for non-Hispanic whites. Any population with a lower rate of gonorrhea than the non-Hispanic white population will have a rate ratio of less than 1:1.
† Y-axis is log scale.
‡ AI/AN = American Indians/Alaska Natives; NHOPI = Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders.
NOTE:Includes 47 states and the District of Columbia reporting race/ethnicity data in Office of Management and Budget compliant formats in 2012 (see Appendix “Interpreting STD Surveillance Data”).
