Figure U. Gonorrhea — Rate Ratios* by Race/Ethnicity and Region, United States, 2016

Figure U. Bar graph showing gonorrhea rate ratios in the United States in 2016 by race/ethnicity and region (West, Midwest, South, and East).

* Rate ratios are calculated as the rate of reported gonorrhea cases per 100,000 population for a given racial or ethnic minority population divided by the rate of reported gonorrhea cases per 100,000 population for Whites. Any population with a lower rate of reported cases of gonorrhea than the 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 Hawaiians/Other Pacific Islanders.

NOTE: Includes 50 states and the District of Columbia reporting race/ethnicity data in Office of Management and Budget compliant formats in 2016 (see Section A1.5 in the Appendix).
