Rates are based on individual-level gonorrhea case report data electronically sent to CDC through the National Electronic Telecommunications System for Surveillance (NETSS) and U.S. Census population data. The race categories used in this report were introduced to the NETSS record in 2008. As of 2011, 46 states and the District of Columbia report using the new format. Race and ethnicity will not be displayed until 100% of states report using the new format.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
The original baseline was revised in 2013 from 220.0 to 216.5 new cases per 100,000 males aged 15-44 years due to reporting delays. The target was adjusted from 198.0 to 194.8 new cases per 100,000 males aged 15-44 years to reflect the revised baseline using the original target setting method.
