Kansas Ranks as #37 Most Sexually Diseased State in U.S.A.

Press Release


Just in time for a little Halloween horror, BackgroundChecks.org has updated their Most Sexually Diseased States in America report. Since we first looked at the data, the CDC has published new findings, with new data from 2016 available.
The 10 most sexually diseased states are currently:
1. Alaska (no change)
2. Mississippi (+2)
3. Louisiana (-1)
4. Georgia (+3)
5. New Mexico (no change)
6. North Carolina (-3)
7. South Carolina (-1)
8. Arkansas (+1)
9. Delaware (+5)
10. Oklahoma (-2)
The 10 least sexually problematic states are currently:
1. Vermont (-3)
2. New Hampshire (+1)
3. West Virginia (+1)
4. Maine (+1)
5. Utah (no change)
6. Idaho (no change)
7. Wyoming (no change)
8. Connecticut (-1)
9. Massachusetts (+1)
10. New Jersey (no change)
Also worth mentioning is the increase in reported gonorrhea cases. The top ten worst states experienced a rise in the rate of gonorrhea per 100k residents. In Alaska (#1), Mississippi (#2) and Georgia (#4), the rate rose by more than 40 per 100k. The across-the-board increase in gonorrhea infection is startling, and many experts attribute it to the rising prevalence of antibiotic-resistant strains of the disease.  With Oklahoma being the worst =, coming in at number ten.
According to the report, Kansas ranks thirty-seventh.  Of the states surrounding Kansas, the state of Kansas ranks the best, with the lowest number of incidents per 100,000 residents. 
37.  Kansas
33. Nebraska
30. Colorado
15.Missouri
10.Oklahoma
Originally released on February 7, 2017, the ranking was created from local county and state health data, social media surveys, and CDC data on the rate of incidents per 100,000 residents for the two most common STDs; gonorrhea and chlamydia.
