Data for Uterine Cancer Rates North Carolina vs. United States, 1999-2009
Number of Cases per 100,000 Population
Produced by the NC Central Cancer Registry, 1/2013.
Rates based on counts less than 16 are unstable. Use with caution.
Cases may not sum to totals due to unknown or other values.
Rates are calculated using the bridged-race population estimates obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics available
online at www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/bridged_race/data_documentation.htm#vintage2011.
Numbers are subject to change as files are updated.
*Counts less than five are suppressed.
