Notes on this indicator: Breast Cancer Death Rate is the number of deaths per 100,000 females. Prostate Cancer Death Rate is the number of deaths per 100,000 males.

Data for counties with fewer than 15 deaths is considered unstable and has been supressed.

Data Sources:

Kentucky Cancer Registry

Description: Additional incidence and mortality data for these and other cancer types is available from the Kentucky Cancer Registry (KCR).  Counties with supressed data may be able to obtain stable rates by expanding the selected time frame on the KCR website, www.kcr.uky.edu.
