Footnotes:

a SEER 9 areas (San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, Atlanta). Based on follow-up of patients into 2012.

b SEER 18 areas (San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, Atlanta, San Jose-Monterey, Los Angeles, Alaska Native Registry, Rural Georgia, California excluding SF/SJM/LA, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey and Georgia excluding ATL/RG). Based on follow-up of patients into 2012.

c Period survival provides a 2011 estimate of survival by piecing together the most recent conditional survival estimates from several cohorts. It is computed here using three year calendar blocks (2009-2011: 0-1 year survival), (2008-2010: 1-2 year survival), (2007-2009: 2-3 year survival), (2006-2008: 3-4 year survival), (2005-2007: 4-5 years survival).

d The difference between 1975-1977 and 2005-2011 is statistically significant (p<.05).

e The standard error is between 5 and 10 percentage points.

f The standard error is greater than 10 percentage points.

- Statistic could not be calculated due to fewer than 25 cases during the time period.
