Estimated numbers of 2013 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 2005-2009 Texas age-, sex-, and race/ethnic-specific cancer incidence rates to the corresponding 2013 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 2008-2009 Texas age-, sex-, and race/ethnic-specific mortality rates to the corresponding 2013 Texas population projections.
In late 2012, the State Demographer calculated 2013 population projections for Texas and Texas counties that for the first time are based on the 2010 U.S. census. Compared to previous years’ population projections based on the 2000 U.S. Census, the new projections resulted in changes in the categorization of multi-race persons and the racial proportions within the population, as well as older population projections. These changes resulted in greater changes in 2013 estimates of cancer cases and deaths than would have been calculated using 2000 Census population estimates.
The sum of male and female expected numbers may not always equal the total due to rounding. Texas 2013 population projections were provided by the Center for Health Statistics, Texas Department of State Health Services, and were current as of February, 2013.
