SYPHILIS (Primary and secondary) — Reported civilian case rates by year,
United States, 1941-1980*
Syphilis is the third most frequently reported communicable disease in the United States. The trend of reported primary and secondary syphilis has changed directions several times during the 39 years these data have been available. Reported primary and secondary syphilis cases totaled 27,204 for 1980, an increase of 9.4% from the number reported for 1979. The variations in reported case rates of primary and secondary syphilis for states reflect differences in many variables, including case-finding activity, availability of public clinic facilities, program priorities, and reporting practices, as well as difference in attack rates.
