Revision History

Date Revision Affected Pages
06/14/2006 The prevalence counts were updated to include a change in race recode. Prior to the CSR's release, the Indian Health Service Link was used to code a small portion of the white population as American Indian/Alaska Native. The prevalence counts were generated before this coding change and have been updated to reflect the coding change. The update only changed a small number of prevalence counts, and only the pages with updated counts are listed as affected pages. Tables changed:
I-17 (PDF, 16 KB) , I-18 (PDF, 14 KB) , II-16 (PDF, 10 KB) , VI-23 (PDF, 10 KB) , XXIII-12 (PDF, 7 KB)

Tables appear in the following topics:

06/06/2006 The data series on the graph were mislabeled for all of the series. The series are now correctly labeled. Figure XVI-3 (PDF, 7 KB)

Figure appears in the following section:
Section 16: Melanoma of the Skin (PDF, 158 KB)

05/15/2006 The incidence and mortality rates for white and black males were mislabeled. The delay-adjusted incidence rates for white males were labeled as black males, and vice-versa. The same type of mislabeling occurred for the mortality rates as well. Figure XXIII-4 (PDF, 8 KB)

Figure appears in the following section:
Section 23: Prostate (PDF, 173 KB)

05/4/2006 The survival rates in Table I-6 were originally suppressed if there were fewer than 25 cases alive at the end of the interval. The survival rates are now suppressed if there are fewer than 16 cases alive at the end of the interval. Table I-6 (PDF, 21 KB)

Table appears in the following topics:

05/4/2006 In Table IV-10, relative survival rates for in situ breast cancer were improperly suppressed. The rates are now shown where there are 16 or more cases alive at the end of the interval. Table IV-10 (PDF, 11 KB)

Table appears in the following topics:

05/4/2006 The period survival rates in Table XVII-4 were originally suppressed if there were fewer than 25 cases alive at the end of the interval. The period survival rates are now suppressed if there are fewer than 16 cases alive at the end of the interval. Consequently, the period rate for black females is no longer suppressed.
Table XVII-4 (PDF, 10 KB)

Table appears in the following topics:

05/3/2006 The year labels for American Indian/Alaska Native rates and trends were changed -- from 1999-2002 to 2000-2003 for rates, and from 1994-2002 to 1994-2003 for trends. Tables changed:
I-19 (PDF, 10 KB) , I-22 (PDF, 10 KB) , I-23 (PDF, 9 KB) , I-24 (PDF, 9 KB)
