If you've been on Facebook anytime in the last 6 months, there's no doubt you've seen advertisements on your feed about STD's from KNOWYO. They break down the types of disease's, and amount of people who have them, per county.
Now, Fox News came up with a list of the "best" and "worst" states to catch or avoid STD's. The study took into account reported infections of major STD's like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Basing it on a scoring system, the best states have the lowest scores, while the worst states had the highest. Wyoming ranks number 5 on the "best" list due to these individual rankings:
37th for chlamydia, 50th for gonorrhea, 46th for syphilis
Louisiana, on the other hand, ranks #1 due to the fact they are 4th for chlamydia, 2nd for gonorrhea, and 3rd for syphilis.
Below, is the top 10 for both lists. You'll notice, for the most part, the top 10 "Best" states are primarily low populated areas:
