Epidemiologic Analysis

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the incidence and mortality patterns of Hodgkin's disease among African-Americans during the period 1973 to 1990. The male and female mortality risk from 1973 to 1990 decreased at essentially constant rates. The males rate declined by about 4% per year and the female rate declined by about 3% per year. The widening differences between incidence and mortality rates is, at least in part, because of better treatment strategies for Hodgkin's disease that have emerged in the last twenty years.

Keywords:   disease incidence, Hodgin's disease, African-Americans, mortality risk, males, females
