Five year Female Breast Cancer Incidence Data

Five Year incidence measures can be used to identify trends and patterns of cancer incidence over time and in different geographic areas. Five year aggregate measures are available at the state and county level. Five year aggregate data is used to reduce the presence of suppressed values due to small numbers; allowing display of data, and stabilization of rates to better evaluate trends. Even with this aggregation some values still need to be suppressed. Advanced options include age group.

The age groups shown are:

  • All Ages
  • Age 50 and Older
  • Age Under 50.

Measure Description:

  • The Average Annual Count is the average number of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among females per year in the five year period.
  • The Crude Rate (Per 100K) is the rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among females per 100,000 Population of females during the five year period.
  • The All Ages AAR (Per 100K) is the age adjusted rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among females per 100,000 Population of females during the five year period. Age adjustment to the 2000 Standard US Census is done to allow direct comparison of rates in counties and state with different population age distributions.
  • The Under 50 AAR (Per 100K) is the age adjusted rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among females under age 50 per 100,000 Population of females under age 50 during the five year period. Age adjustment to the 2000 Standard US Census is done to allow direct comparison of rates in counties and state with different population age distributions.
  • The 50 and Older AAR (Per 100K) is the age adjusted rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among females age 50 and older per 100,000 Population of females age 50 and older during the five year period. Age adjustment to the 2000 Standard US Census is done to allow direct comparison of rates in counties and state with different population age distributions.
