There are few published reports on cancer incidence in the Puerto Rican-born populations of the northeastern United States.
In Connecticut, in the Puerto Rican-born population, which was of low socioeconomic status (i,e., 42% below the poverty level in the 1980 Census), the standardized incidence ratio (SIR) for all invasive cancers diagnosed in 1980-1986 was significantly reduced for female patients (SIR=0.77) but not for male patients (SIR=1.16), on the basis of expected numbers derived from incidence rates for the entire state of Connecticut.
