Key

Symbol Meaning
~ Incidence of skin cancer excludes basal and squamous cell cancers.
* Brain and other nervous system tumors with benign or uncertain behaviors are not included in the total for all invasive malignant tumors.
^ Tumors with a histology of 9963 or 9964 are included under Aleukemic, Subacute, Leukemia NOS, instead of Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorder.

Notes

  • Incidence data are provisional, November 2015.
  • Rates are per 100,000 persons, age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population, with 95% confidence intervals.
  • Rates based on fewer than 4 cases or deaths per year are unstable and should be used with caution. NOS = Not otherwise specified.
