The Bureau of Health Statistics and Research was inspired to generate this report by the American Cancer Society's publication Cancer Facts and Figures for African Americans . Although the basic concepts were similar, this report focuses on Pennsylvania cancer statistics in more detail. In particular, race disparities were identified by the type of cancer, stage at the time of diagnosis, and behavioral risk factors. Please visit the American Cancer Society's Cancer Facts and Figures for additional information on preventing and fighting cancer.
