  • Description:
    The purpose of this Statistical Note is to report breast cancer death rates for health service areas and to provide some guidance to health planners in the use of these rates. This information should be used in conjunction with the breast cancer mortality algorithm published by the Rand Corporation in 1977. Among women, incidence and death rates are higher for breast cancer than for any other site (figure 1). Although breast cancer mortality is declining for women under 50 years of age, the death rates observed in women over 50 years continue to rise (see figure 2). Although little is known about the causes of breast cancer, certain characteristics have been associated with an increased likelihood of developing this disease. These risk factors include race, age, parity, age at menarche/menopause, previous benign breast disease, family history of breast cancer, and previous cancer. statnthp09acc.pdf
