Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Prostate Cancer

Value: 19.7 deaths/100,000 males
Measurement
Period:
2009-2011
Location: County : Marin
Comparison: CA Counties
Categories: Health / Cancer
Health / Mortality Data
Health / Men's Health
What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 males due to prostate cancer.
Why this is important: 
According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer among men in the United States and it is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer-related death among men. The two greatest risk factors for prostate cancer are age and race/ethnicity, with men over the age of 65 and men of African descent possessing the highest incidence rates of prostate cancer in the U.S.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the prostate cancer death rate to 21.2 deaths per 100,000 males.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 58 California counties.
