Demographic characteristics and their impact on STD testing

The characteristics of the groups of people who are predominant in a community have a definite effect on the rate of STD testing that occurs.

The third obstacle is ignorance of the symptoms of STD infection. Some people who are infected do not know that they have an STD and they unknowingly pass it on to others.

Changes in demographic composition of a city can also have an impact for the better or the worse. Migration of people who are more educated or affluent can cause a lowering STD rates throughout time. It can also have an adverse impact on the rates of a city if higher numbers of people move into an area without the knowledge of safe sex practices or the means and awareness to follow up with needed testing and treatment.
