Complete Health Indicator Report of Incidence of Pancreatic Cancer

Definition

Incidence rate of invasive cancer of the pancreas 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 cancer of the pancreas among a defined population in a specified time interval.

Denominator

Defined population in a specified time interval.

Why Is This Important?

During 2018, 853 male and 803 female New Jersey residents were diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas.

How Are We Doing?

Between 1990 and 2018, the age-adjusted pancreatic cancer rate averaged 15 cases in males and 11.8 cases per 100,000 among females. The lifetime risk of developing pancreatic cancer is 1 in 60 for men and 1 in 63 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.
