Errata

This article corrects:


     In the article “Cancer Statistics, 2010” (CA Cancer J Clin 2010;60:277-300), a column of data was missing in Table 6 (page 288). The corrected table is reprinted here.

    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.
