Earlier this year, the CDC released a report on STDs in the U.S. that showed slight increases in nearly all strains.
The yearly report provides only a snapshot of the numbers, since many cases of STDs covered in the report like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis go unreported. Among all three STDs, only congenital syphilis (syphilis present at birth), have gone down. Research engine FindTheBest took the CDC numbers and created these interactive maps for TIME out of the data.
Scroll over your own state and check out the STD rate.
