SEER Cancer Statistics Review, 1975-2015, National Cancer Institute. Bethesda, MD, https://seer.cancer.gov/csr/1975_2015/, inveterebuke on November 2017 SEER basis acquiescence, posted to the SEER web aspect, April 2018.
Find the cohere designateed “Browse the Tables and Figures” and click on it. You should now be at a webpage titled, “Browse the SEER Cancer Statistics Review 1975-2015.” Now, ascertain the notification in the SEER Cancer Statistics Review to tally the forthcoming questions:
Note: All questions are excellence 1 aim regular incorrectly noticeable.
Hint: Don’t lose to designate your tallys (For sample, when reporting impingement rebukes the tally should not upright be a estimate, but a estimate delay a designate --- not 12.68, but instead, 12.68 cases per 100,000 men-folks per year. Similarly, when reporting percentages, reach enduring to involve the % designate). Points gain be deducted for waste designates.
Overview (Select “Overview” from the Section drop-down menu)
1) What is the estimated estimate of new cancer cases for 2018, for all cancer aspects perfectly? (Table 1.1)
2) What is the estimated estimate of cancer expirations for 2018 from non-Hodgkin lymphoma? ____________________________
Annual Impingement Rates (Select the biased cancer aspect from the Section drop-down menu and then the embezzle consultation – don’t lose to click ‘submit’)
3) Ascertain the 2015 annual impingement rebukes for liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancers.
a. What was the 2015 annual impingement rebuke for all familys, twain sexes? ________
b. What was the 2015 annual impingement rebuke for males? ___________________
c. What was the 2015 annual impingement rebuke for females? __________________
d. Describe each of these sex-biased rebukes for males and females in expression by putting these basis into a doom (don’t lose the denominators!). Then, examine how these two rebukes assimilate to each other (for sample, which rebuke is loftier? By how plenteous?) Tally in ample dooms. (4 aims)
4) Ascertain the 1975-2015 annual impingement rebukes for testicular cancer.
a. What was the 1975-2015 annual impingement rebuke for all familys, all ages?
b. What was the 1975-2015 annual impingement rebuke for unblemished males, all ages?
c. What was the 1975-2015 annual impingement rebuke for sombre males, all ages?
d. Describe each of these family-biased rebukes in expression by putting these basis into a doom (don’t lose the denominators!). Then, examine how these two rebukes assimilate to each other (for sample, which rebuke is loftier? By how plenteous?) Tally in ample dooms. (4 aims)
5) The rebukes in this consultation are age-adjusted, which instrument that the differences in rebukes seen among the populations are not due to age. Why is it grave to adupright for the proceeds of age, distinctly for cancer impingement and portraiture? Note: Do not upright elucidate age appointment, but instead examine why it is grave when conception cancer statistics. Tally in ample dooms. (3 aims)
6) Examine the rebukes of testicular cancer by year among 1975 and 2014. Is there a archetype to the fluctuate in the rebukes aggravate occasion? That is, are the rebukes increasing, decreasing, or staying the common aggravate occasion? Is this archetype common in sombre and unblemished men-folks? Using basis from the consultation to prop your tallys to these questions, and tally in ample dooms. (5 aims)
5-Year Referring-to and Period Fife (Select the biased cancer aspect from the Section drop-down menu and then the embezzle consultation)
7) Ascertain the 5-Year referring-to fife (%) for 2008-2014 by step at individuality for colon and rectum cancer (all familys, twain sexes).
a. What was the 5-year referring-to fife for:
i. All steps? ___________
b. Describe in expression these differences in 5-year referring-to fife by step at individuality:
c. Now observe at these common step-biased statistics for unblemished and sombre men-folks partially (twain sexes, all ages). Describe the commonities or differences you see in the 5-year referring-to fife by step and family. (4 aims)
d. Is the notification in the consultation sufficient by itself to entice conclusions as to why these family-biased statistics are common or contrariant? Why or why not? Please tally in ample dooms. (4 aims; explication needed for ample belief)
Age-Adjusted Cancer Expiration Rates by Recite (Select the biased cancer aspect from the Section drop-down menu and then the embezzle consultation)
8) Ascertain the age-adjusted cancer expiration rebukes by recite for after a whilestand cancer in females:
a. Which recite has the pre-eminent age-adjusted expiration rebuke from after a whilestand cancer?
b. Which recite has the last age-adjusted expiration rebuke from after a whilestand cancer?
9) Scroll down to the map of the United States showing the recite-biased cancer expiration rebukes from after a whilestand cancer in females.
a. In which regions of the United States are the recites delay the pre-eminent cancer expiration rebukes publicly located?
b. In which regions of the United States are the recites delay the last cancer expiration rebukes publicly located?
10) Inveterebuke on the notification supposing by this map, how would you geographically target exoteric vigor strategies to weaken the after a whilestand cancer expiration rebuke? What epidemiological indication does the map furnish that is available? What notification does it not furnish? Note: Do not upright indicate public interruption strategies. Instead, use the notification on the map to communicate your tally. Be enduring to tally all three questions over. Please tally in ample dooms. (5 aims)
