Five Georgia cities have made a list of the top 100 most sexually diseased cities in the United States.
Columbus ranked as the most sexually diseased city in Georgia, ranking 40th nationally, according to rentapplication.com, citing 2013 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Albany was second in Georgia and No. 51 nationally, according to a release. Macon was third in the state and No. 54 nationally. Augusta placed fourth and No. 57 in the country, and Valdosta was fifth in the state and 87th nationally.
The study reflected reports of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia (Herpes data is not collected.) To normalize the data, rates were measured per 100,000 people, and cities with a significant population were chosen. Rural counties weren’t included.
