SCAN360: A Resource for a 360-Degree View of Cancer Prevention, Risk, and Survival
TOOLS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE — Volume 17 — November 25, 2020
The image shows 3 options for engaging with the mapping feature of SCAN360. The Map View shows side-by-side choropleth maps showing county-level variations in cervical cancer incidence and mortality in Florida. The map of cervical cancer incidence shows variation across the state. The map of cancer mortality indicates a pattern different from that of cervical cancer incidence. The overall age-adjusted rates for cervical cancer in Florida are also displayed. The overall cervical cancer incidence rate among women of all ages and all races and ethnicities is 9.1 (95% CI, 8.8-9.3) per 100,000. The overall cervical cancer mortality rate among women of all ages and all races and ethnicities is 2.4 (95% CI, 2.2-2.7) per 100,000.
The Map View with Population Filters shows side-by-side maps displaying county-level variations in cervical cancer incidence for non-Hispanic Black women and non-Hispanic White women. Each map is accompanied by a menu of radio buttons for Race & Ethnicity and Sex and boxes for various age groups. The Race & Ethnicity section has 4 options with radio buttons: Everyone, Black Non-Hispanic, White Non-Hispanic, and Hispanic. The Sex section has 3 options with radio buttons: Male & Female, Male, and Female. The Age section has 4 age groups: All, 0-19, 20-64, and ≥65.
The Comparison View shows 2 sets of paired maps of Florida. One shows county-level non-Hispanic Black cervical cancer incidence and county-level non-Hispanic White cervical cancer incidence. The other paired maps show county-level Hispanic cervical cancer incidence and county-level non-Hispanic White cervical cancer incidence. Each pair of maps features a set of drop-down menus corresponding to each comparison. In the first pair of maps, Comparison 1 is listed as Black, Non-Hispanic, Female, All ages and Comparison 2 is listed as White, Non-Hispanic, Female, All ages. In the second pair of maps, Comparison 1 is listed as Hispanic, Female, All ages and Comparison 2 is listed as White, Non-Hispanic, Female, All ages.

This image has 2 parts. The first part highlights the “Detailed Cancer Statistics” tab. A selection of charts is available, including Incidence Rate, Mortality Rate, Percent Late Stage, Age at Diagnosis, and Histology. The Histology option is selected. There are options to select parameters, including type of cancer, location, race and ethnicity, and histological type. The parameters “All Cancers,” “Miami-Dade,” “Little Haiti,” and “Everyone” are selected, indicating the charts are showing the histology of all cancers in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami-Dade County among people of all races and ethnicities. The accompanying graph shows all cancer subtypes in Little Haiti, with adenocarcinoma representing 31%, ductal adenocarcinoma representing 9.9%, squamous cell carcinoma representing 5.8%, malignant neoplasm representing 4.7%, other types representing 42.62%; those that were filtered because they had fewer than 10 cases represented 6.3%.
The second part of the figure highlights the “Risk and Protective Factors” tab. A selection of charts is available, including Socio-Demographics, Economic Resources, Housing/Transportation, and Healthcare Access. The “Socio-Demographics” option is selected. The parameters “Miami-Dade,” “Little Haiti,” and “Socio-Demographics” are selected, indicating the charts are showing the socio-demographics in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami-Dade County. One of the charts focuses on levels of education in Little Haiti. Among people in Little Haiti, 5.8% have no schooling, 11% have less than a 9th grade education, 16% have some high school, 33% have a high school diploma or a GED, 16% have some college completed, 5.5% have an associate’s degree, 9.9% have a bachelor’s degree, and 2.8% have an advanced degree.
