Other Race: Those reported as Asian, Native America, multi-racial or some "other race" are included in the "other race" category.
Race Completeness: These reported values by race are a minimum count because reporting of race is incomplete. Race data has been improving for gonorrhea and chlamydia cases. Completeness of race data has improved from around 50% in 2005, to 75% in 2014–15, to about 81% in 2018. Reported race is nearly complete for syphilis cases (>95%).
