Analyzing Geographic Disparities in Colorectal Cancer Survival

New Jersey State Cancer Registry

We applied geographic methods designed to determine whether patient survival varies by place of residence after adjusting survival times for well-known prognostic factors. Analysis revealed several areas in the northern part of the state where survival was significantly different than expected. The results suggest that in areas where additional adjustments for race/ethnicity and area socioeconomic deprivation changed the geographic survival patterns and reduced the risk of death, the adjustment factors may be contributing causes of the disparities. We recently completed analysis for several other cancer sites, including female breast, lung, prostate, and melanoma.
