Footnotes:

Note: Delay-adjusted melanoma of the skin rates cannot be calculated for the SEER 9 Black population due to low case counts.

Additional information on the model used to delay-adjust SEER Incidence rates can be found at (https://surveillance.cancer.gov/delay/).

a SEER 9 areas (San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, and Atlanta). Rates are per 100,000 and are age-adjusted to the 2000 US Std Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1130).

- Delay-adjusted rate is not shown for observed rates based on less than 16 cases for the time interval.
