Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Lung Cancer

Value: 32.0 deaths/100,000 population
Measurement
Period:
2009-2011
Location: County : Marin
Comparison: CA Counties
Categories: Health / Cancer
Health / Mortality Data
What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to lung cancer.
Why this is important: 
According to the American Lung Association, more people die from lung cancer annually than any other type of cancer, exceeding the total deaths caused by breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer combined. The greatest risk factor for lung cancer is duration and quantity of smoking. While the mortality rate due to lung cancer among men has reached a plateau, the mortality rate due to lung cancer among women continues to increase.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the lung cancer death rate to 45.5 deaths per 100,000 population.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 58 California counties.
