    Rate/Trend Comparison Table
Purpose: Compares cancer rate changes between a county of a state and the entire state or between a state and the US. The graphic version of this table groups the data so you can see quickly if the trends are rising, falling, or remaining stable and how they compare to the selected comparison rates. Cancers that need more attention (have rising rates that are higher than the rate used for comparison) are in the top left, reddish square and are marked by a magnifying glass. Cancers that are doing the best (have falling rates that are lower than the rate used for comparison) are in the bottom right, dark green square and are marked by an apple. The non-graphical version of this table gives you the actual rates and well as the annual percentage changes as well as their 95% confidence intervals.
