They analyzed the latest statistics on a city-by-city basis and developed a list of the Top 100 cities with the highest STD rates. The report this year says the city with the highest STD rate was Jackson Mississippi. Where do we rank in Florida?

Four of these Florida cities landed in the top 25 for highest STD rates. One was only two spots back at #27, not a good look for the Sunshine State. Jacksonville actually has worst rates than the previous study. They rose 15 spots, from 38 to 23. Miami was another city that spiked upwards, it moved five spots to the 24th highest rate.
