Reduced risk of colorectal cancer among recent generations in New Zealand.
Male and female age standardised mortality and incidence rates of colorectal cancer have increased over the most recent 30 years in New Zealand.
Among men and women aged 40 to 74, age standardised mortality and incidence rates increased 18 to 105%. However, age standardised mortality and incidence rates among younger men and women have declined from 14 to 69%. Analysis of trends in age specific mortality and incidence rates indicates that the occurrence of colorectal cancer has been declining equally for men and women in successive cohorts born about 1943 to 1953 in New Zealand.
