A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF REPORTED CASES OF SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE
The entire project work/study talks about the full meaning of the STDS. The causes of the sexually transmitted diseases were found out to be virus and bacteria which can be transmitted from one person to another predominantly through sexual contact. The scope of the study was also special and federal medical center Umuahia (FMC) was used as a case study. One of the studies carried out by Dr. A.U. Mbanuso at the Federal Medical center Umuahia 1990 – 1993. His result showed that the commest and most ducally sexual transmitted disease was HIV/AIDS and Syphilis.
Furthermore, from the designed questionnaire we found out that many people have become aware of the extend of STDS. For the data collection used was a secondary data. The population size in this reported cases of the sexually transmitted diseases under study from 1995 – 2004 the result after study will be used to generalize for the entire population.
The major statistical model employed in the analysis of the data collection was chi-square which was used to the age group and sex. The test hypothesis for the age group shows the X2 cal > X2 tab. Therefore we reject H0: and conclude that the client rate is not dependent of the age. There the test of hypothesis for the sex group shows that X2 cul > X2 tab. Therefore, we reject H0: and conclude that the sexually transmitted diseases under study are not dependent of sex.
Sexually transmitted diseases, which is popularly known as STDS, and its effect is now the talk of the day, town, and world wide, even in Nigeria. This disease is a very strong disease that is caused by virus. This virus enters the body through many means such as sexual intercourse, blood transfusion, parental transmission. The main work of this virus is to weaken the body mechanism known as Lymphocyte (White blood cell) making it possible for any disease which enters the body to attack even more them expected. Both the developed and the undeveloped countries of the world, it is a great problem medically their incidence are steady rising. From the available statistical data the evidence have been showing alarming rate of sexually transmitted diseases every day as mankind gets more civilized.
