Millions of new STD cases are diagnosed every year. Diminishing news coverage might have one thinking otherwise, but sexually transmitted pathogens continue to pervasively infect the wellbeing of the population (especially in young adults). Serious health scares and complications can largely be avoided with the right information, open discussion, and appropriate testing.

The National STD report contains detailed information from the latest reports provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with the respective U.S. Census data to calculate rates on a per-capita basis. Rankings were calculated mainly as a result of the most common STD averages in each state.
