Revision History

Date Revision Affected Pages
11/10/2011 Updates were made in the SEER data to correct a problem with Hispanic incidence. The CSR tables and figures that include incidence-based Hispanic estimates were updated to reflect the change in the SEER data. Further details on the changes are available on Update to the SEER Data. Pages presenting incidence-based Hispanic estimates were updated to reflect the corrected estimates. This includes incidence rates, incidence trends, cause-specific survival and prevalence estimates.
11/10/2011 Lifetime risk estimates were added to the Cancer Statistics Review. Pages presenting lifetime risk estimates were added to sections 1 through 27.
10/20/2011 Mortality estimates were added to the Cancer Statistics Review. Mortality estimates were added to existing pages and new pages that consist only of mortality estimates were added to the report.
10/20/2011 Updates were made in the SEER data to correct a problem with two fields, "Derived SS2000 (2004+)" and "Summary stage 2000 (1998+)". The CSR tables and figures that show 5-year relative survival estimates and corresponding staging distributions by the summary stage 2000 variable were updated to reflect the change in the SEER data. The impact of the revision on estimated rates and stage distribution are negligible. Further details on the changes are available on Update to the SEER Data.
