The report Trends in Cancer Disparities between African Americans and Whites in Wisconsin provides information about trends in cancer incidence (new diagnoses) and mortality (deaths) over the period 1995-2010, as well as highlights disparities in the cancer burden between these populations. The information is designed to support community organizations, advocates, clinicians, policy makers and researchers in working to reduce the burden of cancer.
The report focuses on incidence and mortality for all cancers and for the four most commonly diagnosed cancers: lung, colon, breast and prostate.
