Figure W. Bar graph showing rates of reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis in the United States in 2017 by sex, sexual behavior, race, and Hispanic ethnicity.

* Of all reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis, 15.0% were among men without data on sex of sex partners, and 0.1% were cases with unknown sex; 5.7% of all cases had missing or unknown race/Hispanic ethnicity. Cases with missing or unknown race/Hispanic ethnicity are included in the “Other” category.

NOTE: Not all US jurisdictions reported cases in OMB-compliant Race categories in 2017. This may minimally under- or overestimate rates for Asians, NHOPI, or Multirace individuals. For completeness, data in this figure include cases reported from all jurisdictions. See Section A1.5 in the Appendix for information on reporting STD case data for race and Hispanic ethnicity.

ACRONYMS: AI/AN = American Indians/Alaska Natives; NHOPI = Native Hawaiians/Other Pacific Islanders; OMB = Office of Management and Budget.
