     Rising     when 95% confidence interval of average annual percent change is above 0.
     Stable     when 95% confidence interval of average annual percent change includes 0.
     Falling     when 95% confidence interval of average annual percent change is below 0.
Rate Comparison
     Above     when 95% confident the rate is above and Rate Ratio3 > 1.10
     Similar     when unable to conclude above or below with confidence.
     Below     when 95% confident the rate is below and Rate Ratio3 < 0.90

1 Priority indices were created by ordering from rates that are rising and above the comparison rate to rates that are falling and below the comparison rate.
2 Recent trend in death rates is usually an Average Annual Percent Change (AAPC) based on the APCs calculated by Joinpoint Version Due to data availability issues, the time period and/or calculation method used in the calculation of the trends may differ for selected geographic areas.
3 Rate ratio is the county rate divided by the US rate. Previous versions of this table used one-year rates for states and five-year rates for counties. As of June 2018, only five-year rates are used.
Source: Death data provided by the National Vital Statistics System public use data file. Death rates calculated by the National Cancer Institute using SEER*Stat. Death rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population (19 age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-9, ... , 80-84, 85+). The Healthy People 2020 goals are based on rates adjusted using different methods but the differences should be minimal. Population counts for denominators are based on Census populations as modified by NCI. The 1969-2018 US Population Data File is used with mortality data.
Note: When the population size for a denominator is small, the rates may be unstable. A rate is unstable when a small change in the numerator (e.g., only one or two additional cases) has a dramatic effect on the calculated rate. Suppression is used to avoid misinterpretation when rates are unstable.

State Cancer Registries may provide more current or more local data. Data presented on the State Cancer Profiles Web Site may differ from statistics reported by the State Cancer Registries (for more information).

Data for the following has been suppressed to ensure confidentiality and stability of rate and trend estimates:
Armstrong County, Bailey County, Borden County, Briscoe County, Brooks County, Cochran County, Coke County, Collingsworth County, Concho County, Cottle County, Crane County, Crockett County, Crosby County, Culberson County, Dallam County, Dickens County, Edwards County, Fisher County, Floyd County, Foard County, Garza County, Glasscock County, Hall County, Hansford County, Hardeman County, Hartley County, Hemphill County, Hudspeth County, Irion County, Jeff Davis County, Jim Hogg County, Kenedy County, Kent County, Kimble County, King County, Kinney County, Knox County, La Salle County, Lipscomb County, Loving County, Lynn County, Martin County, McMullen County, Menard County, Mills County, Motley County, Oldham County, Parmer County, Presidio County, Reagan County, Roberts County, San Saba County, Schleicher County, Shackelford County, Sherman County, Sterling County, Stonewall County, Sutton County, Terrell County, Throckmorton County, Upton County, Wheeler County, Winkler County, Yoakum County, Zapata County, Zavala County

Trend for the following could not be reliably determined due to small number of deaths per year:
Baylor County, Brewster County, Castro County, Dimmit County, Goliad County, Mason County, Real County, Reeves County, Swisher County, Ward County

Interpret Rankings provides insight into interpreting cancer statistics. When the population size for a denominator is small, the rates may be unstable. A rate is unstable when a small change in the numerator (e.g., only one or two additional cases) has a dramatic effect on the calculated rate.

Data for United States does not include Puerto Rico.
