Footnotes:

Source: SEER 9 areas (San Francisco, Connecticut, Detroit, Hawaii, Iowa, New Mexico, Seattle, Utah, and Atlanta). Based on follow-up of patients into 2015. Expected survival rates are derived from the U.S. Annual Life Tables.

Note: Neuroblastoma and Wilms' tumor are not mutually exclusive from the other tumors presented in table.

a Neuroblastoma is defined as histologies 9490-9509.

b Wilms' tumor is defined as histologies 8959-8960.

c The difference between 1975-1977 and 2008-2014 is statistically significant (p<.05).

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

e The standard error is greater than 10 percentage points.

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