Table 6. The Contribution of Individual Cancer Sites to the Decrease in Cancer Death Rates, 1990-2006
MALEDEATH RATE (PER 100,000)CHANGE% CONTRIBUTION
1990*2006ABSOLUTE%
  • *

    Death rates for cancer peaked in 1990 in men and in 1991 in women.

  • This calculation is based on each cancer site's contribution to the increasing or decreasing portion of the total cancer death rate, depending on the individual site's trend; it does not represent the contribution to the net decrease in cancer death rates.
