Which NY counties have highest rates of STDs? 62 counties, ranked – newyorkupstate.com

In New York State, cases of the sexually transmitted diseases chlamydia and gonorrhea have increased for the past four years in a row, while cases of syphilis have declined for the first year after five consecutive years of growth.
Those are the three major sexually transmitted diseases reported by healthcare providers, according to the latest annual Sexually Transmitted Infections Surveillance Report from 2017.
According to the data, chlamydia is the most common STD in the state, with 116,843 diagnoses, followed by gonorrhea with 34,111 cases and syphilis with 6273 cases, statewide.
“These data represent only a portion of the true burden of STIs in NYS,” notes the report. “Many cases of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia go undiagnosed and unreported, and several highly prevalent STIs, such as human papilloma virus (HPV), genital herpes, and trichomoniasis, are not reported at all,” for the purposes of the annual survey.
Below, you can find all 62 counties in New York ranked according to the rate of reported STI cases per 100,000 residents, using data for the three most notable STIs, according to the report.
