Wyoming currently has a 78.3 percent Pap test screening rate, compared to the national median of 81.2 percent.

Wyoming’s current cervical cancer incidence rate of 8.62 is higher than the U.S. incidence rate of 7.88 per. And the state’s cervical cancer death rate of 2.99 is higher than the U.S. death rate of 2.17.
