† Total includes cases reported with unknown sex.

NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/Hispanic ethnicity comparisons. See Table 34 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 27–29 for total and sex-specific cases and rates. Primary and secondary syphilis reported among children aged 0–4 may represent the misclassification of congenitally-acquired syphilis. Cases reported as congenitally-acquired syphilis (congenital syphilis) can be found in Table 40. No population data exist for unknown sex, unknown age, or other/unknown race; therefore rates are not calculated.
