Number of females aged 24 years or younger who enrolled in a National Job Training Program in the past 12 months and tested positive for Chlamydia
Since 1990, approximately 20,000 female National Job Training Program entrants have been screened each year for Chlamydia. This program, administered by the National Job Training Program at more than 100 sites throughout the country, is a job training program for economically-disadvantaged youth aged 16-24 years-old..
Data are limited to entrance exam testing; therefore, no one is included twice. All persons entering the National Job Training Program are required to be tested. .
Chlamydia prevalence data on female National Job Training Program entrants are included when the number of females tested from a state was greater than or equal to 100. The baseline measure is median state-specific prevalence. Medians are reported when at least 20 states met the inclusion criteria.
