Abstract

Data from 36 states and metropolitan areas were used to describe geographic variation in age-adjusted colorectal cancer incidence rates in the United States. Potential determinants of identified variability were obtained from NAACCR, the U.S. Census, and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. These included case ascertainment completeness, racial composition, age structure, urbanization, and colorectal cancer screening. The findings, being ecologic in nature, are described as merely suggestive of potential hypotheses for future analytic research.
