Abstract

Geographic variations of lung cancer mortality have been observed since the 1950s. Differences in incidence have not been available outside of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program areas until recently. Using data submitted to NAACCR for 1988-1991, three-to-fourfold differences in white populations were found among registries, ranging from 50% higher and 50% lower than the U.S. rates as determined by the SEER Program. Large geographic variations were identified; this information is important for cancer control programs in high-risk states.
