Abstract

Although recent data for areas within the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program indicate both consistent trends in prostate cancer incidence rates and variability in the absolute magnitude of those rates, these patterns have not been evaluated in other areas of the United States. Prostate cancer incidence rates were evaluated for 1989-1994 to assess the extent of the geographic variability in the trends of prostate cancer incidence rates. Similar trends and variability were found as reported from the SEER Program.
