description:
The agency conducted this study to examine the possible social, behavioral, and biological determinants of disparities in cancer survival between black and white cancer patients. This series contains epidemiologic data for four common cancers - breast, colon, bladder, and endometrial - which were among those with the greatest racial disparities in survival reported by Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) and the earlier End Results Group. The data are for SEER cancer registrie s in Atlanta, San Francisco, and Louisiana, with additional information on patients diagnosed from 1985 to 1987. The series includes detailed public use medical and demographic data from personal interviews, medical records abstracts, physician records, and pathology reviews. This data comprises government records extracted from the Archival Research Catalog (ARC). See the ARC catalog entry for this series for more information on this data and how to order it.
