Population data are based on US Census Bureau Population Estimates Program and modified by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) using special processing procedures for counties affected by Hurricanes Rita & Katrina. The racial/ethnic groups represented are: White, Non-Hispanic White, Hispanic White, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic. Deaths in persons of unknown race are not reflected in race/ethnicity breakdown. Hispanic ethnicity is not mutually exclusive from White, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI) or other race. Hispanic ethnicity derived from North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Hispanic Identification Algorithm and may be of any race. AI incidence data are based on linkage with US Department of Health and Human Services Indian Health Service patient registration files. For more information on the changes in racial/ethnic groupings, visit the Race Recode page on the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) website.
