  • About 898,000 cancer deaths were averted from 1991 through 2007 as a result of the continued decline in cancer deaths rates.
  • Level of education is often used as a marker for socioeconomic status. If the death rates of the most educated non-Hispanic whites are applied to all individuals ages 25 to 64 – i.e., if everyone had the cancer burden of the most educated -- the number of cancer deaths in this age group could be reduced by 37%.
  • Among African Americans aged 25-64, there were 12,710 cancer deaths in men and 11,850 cancer deaths in women in 2007. Eliminating economic disparities among African Americans could potential avoid 10,050 cancer deaths, twice as many as eliminating racial disparities.
