Notes

  • Rates are per 100,000 persons, age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population, with 95% confidence intervals. Incidence data provisional, November 2014.
  • Rates based on fewer than 4 cases or deaths per year are unstable and should be used with caution.
  • The data in this table are not identical to the data in the corresponding 2008-2012 incidence table. See the rationale in 'Considerations When Comparing Cancer Statistics Over Time'.
