- Abstract
- This data set contains 1970-1994 cancer mortality information for counties in the United States. Included are death rates, number of deaths, confidence levels, and expected number of deaths for white males and white females for 20 cancers. The data are from a cancer mapping project in the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG).
- Purpose
- These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the national level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the use of these data.
