New Study Says Wyoming Has the Fifth Lowest Rate of STD’s in the Country
Last year, the Wyoming Department of Health posted controversial billboards all over the state which read "Wyoming Has Gonorrhea".
However, according to a new Roadsnacks study, Wyoming has the fifth lowest rate of sexually transmitted diseases in the country.
Citing data from the Centers for Disease Control, the study analyzed cases involving the three most common STDs, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis.
Based on the number of infections in each state compared to the total population, Wyoming ranked 46th nationally. Only West Virginia, Maine, Vermont and Utah had a lower rate of STDs than Wyoming.
Louisiana had the highest number of STD cases in the nation, per capita. Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina rounded out the five worst states for STD infections.
