Cancer in Colorado, 2000-2009:  Incidence, Mortality, and Survival.

 

Cancer in Colorado, 2000-2009: Incidence, Mortality, and Survival is a publication of the Colorado Central Cancer Registry, which reports statewide, population-based cancer incidence, early detection, survival, and mortality data.

 

This report contains information on data sources and collection, and technical notes explaining the statistical methods used.  Data describing Colorado statewide, age-adjusted incidence and mortality statistics by gender and race/ethnicity are presented for all cancers combined and 27 separate kinds of cancer for 2005-09.  Comparisons to U.S. cancer incidence and mortality are included.  Colorado early detection percentages are displayed by race/ethnicity for 2004-08 and 2009.  Colorado age-specific incidence rates are presented by gender for 2005-09.  Five-year cancer survival statistics by stage and race/ethnicity are displayed for Colorado cancer cases diagnosed during 1999-2002 and 2003-2006.  Survival statistics are also presented by stage for cumulative survival at each year from one to five years after diagnosis for Colorado cancer cases diagnosed 1999-2006.  For eight major cancers, county-specific and multicounty-regional tables are presented for incidence, early detection and mortality for 2000-06 and 2007-09.  The county incidence and mortality tables are displayed by gender.  Additional tables by gender and race/ethnicity present 2000-2009 Colorado statewide cancer incidence counts and rates by year for over 70 kinds of cancer and 2000-2009 cancer mortality counts and rates by year for 30 selected kinds of cancer.

Cancer in Colorado, 1995-2005: Incidence and mortality by county with annual statewide incidence and mortality rates and counts by cancer site, sex, and race/ethnicity pdf file
   

This report contains information on data sources and collection, and technical notes explaining the statistical methods used. Data describing Colorado statewide incidence, early detection, and mortality statistics are presented for all cancers combined and eight additional major cancers for 2000-2004 and 2005.  The same data for the counties and for Colorado Planning and Management Regions (PMRs) are presented for 1995-1999, 2000-2002 and 2003-2005. Additional tables present statewide 1995-2005 incidence counts and rates for over 70 detailed cancer sites by year and 1995-2005 mortality counts and rates for 30 selected cancers by year. All statewide, county, and PMR rates are age-adjusted and displayed by gender. All statewide rates are also displayed by race/ethnicity.

Cancer & Poverty, Colorado 1995-2006  pdf file 

 

The publication of Cancer and Poverty in Colorado: 1995-2006, prepared by the Comprehensive Cancer Program (CCP) of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), is a continuation of a series of Colorado reports on cancer. This report provides updated information on the relationship between poverty and cancer by adding data from the years 2001-2006 to the analysis from a previous report on this topic that included the years 1995-2000.  The report may be useful to policy makers, healthcare professionals, and community groups to assist in developing and evaluating prevention and intervention strategies, identifying high risk populations, and prioritizing resource allocations for cancer-related services. As with the earlier study, this report uses information on cancer incidence, stage, and survival from the Colorado Central Cancer Registry (CCCR), information on cancer-related behaviors and screening from the 1995-2006 Colorado Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) surveys, and information on poverty and population counts from the U.S. Census Bureau. Information on insurance status of cancer cases is obtained from the CCCR in this report. Categories of poverty were defined in the BRFSS surveys data by self-report of household income, and in the cancer registry data by the 2000 US Census information about the percentage of households living in poverty in the neighborhoods in which cancer cases resided.

Ratios of Cancer Incidence in ten areas around Rocky Flats, Colorado compared to the remainder of Metropolitan Denver, 1980-89 with update for selected areas, 1990-95  pdf file

 

This report summarizes an analysis of cancer incidence among residents in 10 Regional Statistical Areas in the general vicinity of Rocky Flats during 1980-89 compared to the remainder of Metropolitan Denver. A 16-page narrative is followed by 52 figures and tables showing the number of cancer cases diagnosed compared to the number expected over this time period. The expected number of cancer cases in the 10 areas, adjusted for population differences by race/ethnicity, sex and age, were calculated using cancer rates from the remainder of Metro Denver. With this report, citizens in the vicinity of Rocky Flats can compare their communities' cancer incidence during 1980-89 to the remainder of Metro Denver. Cancer types included in the study are: all cancer types combined for persons of all ages and for children, lung, liver, bone, leukemia, lymphoma, esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum, prostate and brain and central nervous system. Also included in the report are: an update for selected areas for 1990-95, technical appendices and references.
