Description

The Cancer Mapping data consists of counts of newly diagnosed cancer among New York State residents and is in response to legislation regarding "Cancer incidence and environmental facility maps" signed into law in 2010 (Public Health Law §2401-B). The law specifies the publication of maps showing cancer counts for small geographic areas along with certain facilities regulated by the State Department of Environmental Conservation. The official web site is called Environmental Facilities and Cancer Mapping. The dataset is ONLY for the cancer-related data fields on the Environmental Facilities and Cancer Mapping web site. This dataset includes observed counts for 23 separate anatomical sites at the level of census block group. Block groups are small geographic areas typically averaging 1,000 to 1,500 people. To protect confidentiality, each area contains a minimum of 6 total cancers among males and 6 total cancers among females.

Notes
The dataset also includes age and sex-adjusted expected cancer counts. Expected counts are the number that would be expected if the rate was uniform throughout New York State, allowing for variations in the age and gender composition of the population. The data also indicate whether each block group belongs to a highlighted area. Highlighted areas are those with statistically unusual cancer excesses or deficits. Effective 11/22/2012, the Cancer Mapping dataset includes 23 instead of the previous six (6) sites. For a comprehensive site listing please refer to the Data Dictionary.
