NOTE: These tables should be used only for race/Hispanic ethnicity comparisons. See Table 15 for age-specific cases and rates and Tables 14, 14A, and 14B 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 20. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced uncertainty and difficulty in interpreting 2020 case data. See Impact of COVID-19 on STDs for more information.
