Immigrant Health Inequalities in the United States: Use of Eight Major National Data Systems
US cancer incidence rates by nativity/immigrant status: The US National Longitudinal Mortality Study Linked with 11 SEER Registries, 1980–1998. SEER: surveillance, epidemiology, and end results. Incidence rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population. Differences in incidence rates between US-born and foreign-born individuals were statistically significant at the 0.05 level for all cancers combined, lung, prostate, breast, and stomach cancers. The 11 SEER registries include Iowa, Hawaii, Seattle, Connecticut, Detroit, Utah, Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose/Monterey, Greater California, Louisiana, and Kentucky.
