Complete Health Indicator Report of Incidence of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Definition

Incidence rate of non-Hodgkin lymphoma for a defined population in a specified time interval. Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population. Rates are per 100,000 population.

Numerator

Number of new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among a defined population in a specified time interval.

Denominator

Defined population in a specified time interval.

Why Is This Important?

In New Jersey, 1,317 males and 1096 females were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma during 2018.

How Are We Doing?

Between 1990 and 2018, the age-adjusted incidence rate of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in New Jersey males increased from 22.3 cases per 100,000 to about 26.9 cases per 100,000. Among New Jersey females, the incidence rates increased from 14.7 cases per 100,000 in 1990 to 18.2 cases per 100,000 in 2018. The lifetime risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma is 1 in 41 for men and 1 in 52 for women.

What Is Being Done?

A Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan was developed by the Task Force on Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment in New Jersey which aims to reduce the incidence, illness and death due to cancer among New Jersey residents. [https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/ncccp/ccc_plans.htm]

Data Notes

Incidence rates (cases per 100,000 population per year) are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population (19 age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-9, ..., 80-84, 85+). Rates are for invasive cancer only (except for bladder cancer which is invasive and in situ) or unless otherwise specified.
