Additional STD Test Statistics in Rhode Island

A number of sexually transmitted diseases including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, HIV, and Herpes have rapidly been growing out of control within RI. Although the state has offered a number of resources and services to the general public to fight this epidemic, the STD rates are continuing to rise.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2013 Rhode Island young people STD report, the state isn’t the worst when compared to the other 49 states. The report was broken down by the states counties and addressed the chlamydial, gonorrheal, and syphilis rates individually. According to this report, with 100,000 person population sample size:

  • A very large majority of counties had an average chlamydia rate between 1000 and 3000
  • All counties in RI had a less than or equal to rate of 300 in regards to gonorrhea
  • In the primary and secondary syphilis rates were considerably lower throughout the state overall

As a whole, the state did not have any counties that had exponentially abnormal rates, which is a great sign. Additionally, the report compared the state’s STD rates to the U.S. averages. Across the board, Rhode Island had lower rates than the national average. More specifically, the state had a chlamydial rate of 1856.6 while the national rate was 2160.2. Also, the gonorrheal rate for the state was 141.7 while the U.S. average rate remained 421.3. Finally, the Primary and Secondary Syphilis rate for the state was 3.1 while the U.S. Average was 10.3.

Even more recently, the CDC released its annual state health profile of Rhode Island, providing up-to-date information that can provide more insight towards this unfolding epidemic. Inside the state’s health profile, statistics revealed the increasing severity for specific sexual transmitted diseases. For example, in 2009, the state had a syphilis rate of 1.9. However, in 2013, the rate sharply increased to 4.3. According to its rate, the state is now ranked 18th. Additionally, the CDC ranked the state 29th for its rate of chlamydial infections and ranked the state 43rd for its gonorrheal infections. Although the state is seeing an increase with a large number of various STDs, it appears that primary and secondary syphilis is exponentially increasing fastest.
