* Rate ratios are calculated as the rate of reported primary and secondary syphilis cases per 100,000 population for a given racial or ethnic minority population divided by the rate of reported primary and secondary syphilis cases per 100,000 population for Whites. Any population with a lower rate of reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis than the White population will have a rate ratio of less than 1:1.

† Y-axis is log scale.

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.
