Population-Based Analysis of Incidence Rates of Cancer and Noncancer Chronic Diseases in the US Elderly Using NLTCS/Medicare-Linked Database

Figure 3

Age-specific cancer incidence rates: means and SE of NLTCS/Medicare (Algorithms A and D) and SEER data for 1994–2003. The rate for SEER above 85 is shown at mean age of cases above 85. The number in the right upper corner is the renormalization factor: true incidence rates are obtained by dividing plotted rates by this factor.
