Footnotes:

a US 2014 cancer prevalence counts are based on 2014 cancer prevalence proportions from the SEER registries and 1/1/2014 US population estimates based on the average of 2013 and 2014 population estimates from the US Bureau of the Census. Prevalence was calculated using the first invasive tumor for each cancer site diagnosed during the previous 39/22 years.

b Statistics based on SEER 9 Areas.

c Statistics based on SEER 13 Areas excluding the Alaska Native Registry

d Statistics based on NHIA for Hispanic for SEER 13 Areas excluding the Alaska Native Registry.

e Maximum limited-duration prevalence: 39 years for 1975-2014 SEER 9 data; 22 years for 1992-2014 SEER 13 data (excluding the Alaska Navtive Registry) used to calculate prevalence for Hispanics and Asian Pacific Islanders.

f Percentages are age-adjusted to the 2000 US Standard Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1130) by 5-year age groups.

g Cases diagnosed more than 39 years ago were estimated using the completeness index method (Capocaccia et. al. 1997, Merrill et. al. 2000).

h Complete prevalence is obtained by summing 0 to <39 and >=39.

i Age-specific completeness index was approximated using empirical data from historical Connecticut tumor registry.

- Statistic not shown. Statistic based on fewer than 5 cases estimated alive in SEER for the time interval.

+ Not available.
