Have you ever wondered where different Sexually-Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are most commonly diagnosed across the United States? The team at CEUfast has and sought out the answer to this question for one of the most prevalent STDs out there, Chlamydia. Using STD data that is collected annually by the CDC, the most recent of which was from 2018, they mapped out where the highest rates of chlamydia were diagnosed in the U.S.
This infographic highlights 50 counties across the country that have seen the highest rates of chlamydia diagnosis, and the numbers are staggering for some. One county in Texas had 5% of its population diagnosed with the disease in 2018 alone! Not only can you see which counties have the highest rates, but you can also see how the chlamydia diagnosis rates have changed in each state over time with a color-coded map. The rates of diagnosis across the country are far higher now than they were back in 2000.
