Footnotes:

Note: Incidence and death rates are per 100,000 and are age-adjusted to the 2000 US Std Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1130).

a 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).

b US Mortality Files, National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

c SEER 18 areas. Based on follow-up of patients into 2014.

d Mesotheliomas of the Pleura are included in the separate group Mesothelioma for incidence but are included in the Pleura grouping for mortality.

e Ovary excludes borderline cases or histologies 8442, 8451, 8462, 8472, and 8473.

f Due to coding changes, Brain & Nervous System mortality are no longer shown separately.

g Rate not shown for mortality. Category did not exist in mortality coding until 1999.

- Statistic could not be calculated due to less than 16 cases in the time interval.
