Incidence of Esophageal Cancer by County, Female, 2016-2020

Why Is This Important?

During 2020, 367 male and 112 female New Jersey residents were diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. Esophageal cancer does have some modifiable risk factors. You can reduce your risk of developing this disease by avoiding tobacco and alcohol, watching your diet and body weight, and getting treated for gastroesophageal reflux disease or Barrett's esophagus.

Definition

Incidence rate of invasive esophagus cancer 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.

Data Notes

  • Data have been age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
  • 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. Number of cases (numerator) is the total count of cases in five years.
