Estimated numbers of 2014 cancer cases and deaths for all primary cancer sites are available statewide, by Health Service Region, and for Texas counties with a population of at least 100,000. Estimated cases are calculated by applying 2006-2010 Texas age-, sex-, and race/ethnic-specific cancer incidence rates to the corresponding 2014 Texas population projections. California incidence rates were used for melanoma, breast and prostate cancers. California rates were used because of similarity between California and Texas populations and more complete California Cancer Registry case ascertainment for these cancer sites. Estimated numbers of cancer deaths were calculated by applying 2009-2010 Texas age-, sex-, and race/ethnic-specific mortality rates to the corresponding 2014 Texas population projections.
The sum of male and female expected numbers may not always equal the total due to rounding. Texas 2014 population projections were provided by the Center for Health Statistics, Texas Department of State Health Services, and were current as of February, 2014.
