Complete Health Indicator Report of Cancer of the Brain and Central Nervous System

Definition

The rate of incidence of cancer of the brain and central nervous system (ICD-10: C71-72) in Utah per 100,000 population.

Numerator

The number of incidents of cancer of the brain and central nervous system among Utah population for a given time period (ICD-10: C71-72).

Denominator

Population of Utah for a specific period of time.

Data Interpretation Issues

Incidence rates may vary from source to source. This may be due to provisional data or using different population databases.

Why Is This Important?

Brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors are the second most common cancers in children (after leukemia). They account for about 16% of childhood cancers.[1]

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

From 2009-2013, Utah and the U.S. had similar incidence rates of brain and central nervous system cancer. Utah's rate was 7.0 per 100,000 population and the U.S. rate was 6.6 per 100,000 population (age-adjusted rates).[2]
