Footnotes:

Source: Incidence data for whites and blacks are from the SEER 9 areas (San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, Atlanta). Incidence data for Asian/Pacific Islanders, American Indians/Alaska Natives and Hispanics are from the SEER 13 Areas (SEER 9 Areas, San Jose-Monterey, Los Angeles, Alaska Native Registry and Rural Georgia).

Mortality data are from US Mortality Files, National Center for Health Statistics, CDC.

a Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 US Std Population (19 age groups - Census P25-1103).

Regression lines are calculated using the Joinpoint Regression Program Version 4.6, February 2018, National Cancer Institute. Joinpoint analyses for Whites and Blacks during the 1975-2014 period allow a maximum of 5 joinpoints. Analyses for other ethnic groups during the period 1992-2014 allow a maximum of 4 joinpoints.

c Rates for American Indian/Alaska Native are based on the CHSDA(Contract Health Service Delivery Area) counties.

d Hispanic is not mutually exclusive from whites, blacks, Asian/Pacific Islanders, and American Indians/Alaska Natives. Incidence data for Hispanics are based on NHIA and exclude cases from the Alaska Native Registry. Mortality data for Hispanics exclude cases from New Hampshire and Oklahoma.
