Figure O. Gonorrhea — Rate Ratios by Race/Ethnicity and Region, United States, 2012
This web page is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being updated. Newer data is available on the STD Data and Statistics page.
* 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”).
