The current study used Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) colorectal carcinoma screening data for 1997 and 1999 and BRFSS breast and cervical carcinoma screening data for 1998–2000 to examine whether screening rates of African-American and white men and women living in the U.S. southern Black Belt demonstrated disparities, and whether they differed from those of persons living in other parts of the U.S. The major finding was that racial differences were less notable than regional differences, with persons living in southern rural areas found to have significantly lower colorectal carcinoma screening rates.
