<< Report to the Nation Archive

The following PDF files contain supplemental data for the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer (1975-2000).

Revised Text/Tables:

"Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975-2000, Featuring the Uses of Surveillance Data for Cancer Prevention and Control" by Weir et al. [J Nat Cancer Inst 2003;1276-99 (Issue 17)]. On page 1281, in the "Lung Cancer and Tobacco Use" section of "Results", the fifth sentence should read: "Delaware, Oklahoma and West Virginia reported increasing tobacco consumption." On page 1283, in the "Prostate Cancer" section of "Results", the third sentence should read: "[Prostate cancer] death rates for white men ranged from 36.9 per 100,000 men in Wyoming to 24.8 per 100,000 men in Alaska". On page 1289, revised data for Table 5 "Prevalence of prostate-specific antigen testing, incidence of prostate cancer and prostate cancer death rates among black and white men by state" can be found below. On pages 1290-1292, revised data for Table 6 "Prevalence of colorectal cancer screening, incidence of colorectal cancer, and colorectal cancer death rates by blacks and whites by state" can be found below. The authors regret the error.
