Answer

In 2016, the rate of reported gonorrhea cases was higher in men than in women (170.7 versus 121.0 cases per 100,000 same-sex population).  Rates in women fell in 2012-2014, from 107.9 to 100.4 per 100,000, but have been rising since then; rates in men have increased steadily since 2012, when the rate was 105.0 per 100,000.
