abstract: These datasets contain age-adjusted rates for selected cancers among New Jersey children aged less than 15.
purpose: These data contribute to the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network. The EPHT cooperative agreement states that "by September 30, 2008 [all grantees must] track and make available core environmental health tracking measures on the State and National EPHT Network [including] data/information on key water contaminants, as defined through the Content workgroup process." The Content Workgroup Cancer Team identified cancer sites/types of concern, and developed recommendations for nationally consistent indicators and measures. Available data includes: case counts; and age-adjusted incidence rates by year, sex, and county.
supplemental_data_info: These data are aggregated and do not contain any identifying information.
