Data & Statistics
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) continue to rise in the United States, and trends throughout the southeastern states resemble those of the nation. One in two sexually active persons will contract an STD by age 25 (Cates et al., 2004). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 20 million new STIs occur every year in this country, half of those among young people aged 15–24 (CDC, 2015). The data presented here provide additional details about STDs in Georgia.
