Notes

  • Incidence data are provisional, November 2016.
  • 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.
  • NYSCR mortality statistics might differ slightly from official mortality statistics due to the availability of additional demographic information.
