Footnotes:

The AAPC is the Average Annual Percent Change over the time interval. The AAPCs are calculated by the Joinpoint Regression Program Version 4.1.0, April 2014, National Cancer Institute.

- Statistic not shown. Rate based on less than 16 cases for the time interval. Trend based on less than 10 cases for at least one year within the time interval.

a Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 US Std Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1130). Trends are based on rates age-adjusted to the 2000 US Std Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1130).

b The SEER 9 areas are San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, and Atlanta.
The SEER 13 areas comprise the SEER 9 areas plus San Jose-Monterey, Los Angeles, the Alaska Native Registry, and Rural Georgia.
The SEER 18 areas comprise the SEER 13 areas plus California excluding SF/SJM/LA, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, and Georgia excluding ATL/RG.

c The 2002-2011 AAPC estimates are based on a Joinpoint analysis with up to 3 Joinpoints over diagnosis years 1992-2011.

d The 2002-2011 AAPC estimates are based on a Joinpoint analysis with up to 5 Joinpoints over diagnosis years 1975-2011.

e Hispanic and Non-Hispanic are not mutually exclusive from whites, blacks, Asian/Pacific Islanders, and American Indians/Alaska Natives. Incidence data for Hispanics and Non-Hispanics are based on NHIA and exclude cases from the Alaska Native Registry. The 2002-2011 Hispanic and Non-Hispanic mortality trends exclude deaths from New Hampshire and Oklahoma.

f Incidence data for American Indian/Alaska Native are based on the CHSDA(Contract Health Service Delivery Area) counties.

g US Mortality Files, National Center for Health Statistics, CDC.

h The 2002-2011 mortality AAPCs are based on a Joinpoint analysis using years of death 1992-2011.

* The APC is significantly different from zero (p<.05).
