In the combined Detroit-Warren-Dearborn area, there were 22,238 chlamydia cases in 2015, at a rate of 517.6 per 100K people. Of that number, 14,889 cases were in Wayne County, so Warren’s rate would be lower than the combined rate.
The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates for the combined area were 127.9 and 6.6. Health officials cite budget cuts as a possible reason for the rising rates.
