* Rates based on less than 10 cases are unstable. Use with caution.

  1. Rate age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Census.
  2. 1995-97 reported cases per 100,000 population. The female breast cancer rate uses the female population and the prostate cancer rate uses the male population in the denominator.
  3. Cases per 10,000 population.

These age-adjusted cancer incidence rates for 1995-1997 are a corrected version of those originally published in the 1999 North Carolina Health Statistics Pocket Guide.
