NOTE: This table was revised on May 9, 2022, to reflect updated race/Hispanic ethnicity data for reported cases of congenital syphilis in 2020.

No population data exist for other or unknown race; therefore, rates are not calculated. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced uncertainty and difficulty in interpreting 2020 case data. See Impact of COVID-19 on STDs for more information.
