    Background

    Racial and ethnic differences in cancer incidence and mortality are well documented.

    New Mexico's ethnically and racially diverse population provides an opportunity to further examine ethnic and racial differences in cancer occurrence.

    Purpose

    To address differences in cancer mortality among the state's Hispanics, American Indians, and non-Hispanic Whites, we examined mortality data collected from 1958 through 1987.

    Methods

    Sex and age-specific and age-adjusted cancer mortality rates were calculated for all sites and specific sites for American Indians, Hispanics, and non-Hispanic Whites.
