Note: Non-Small Cell Cancer of the Lung and Bronchus includes histologies 8003-8004, 8012-8015, 8021-8022, 8030-8035, 8046, 8050-8052, 8070-8076, 8078, 8082-8084, 8090, 8094, 8120, 8123, 8140-8141, 8143-8145, 8147, 8190, 8200-8201, 8211, 8240-8241, 8243-8246, 8249-8255, 8260, 8290, 8310, 8320, 8323, 8333, 8401, 8430,8440,8470-8471,8480-8481, 8490, 8503, 8507, 8525, 8550, 8560, 8562, 8570-8572, 8574-8576.

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 Stage at diagnosis is classified using SEER Summary Stage 2000. Stage distribution percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding.

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

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

g The standard error is greater than 10 percentage points.

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