    Article - En anglais



    The goal of this study was to develop and validate quantitative models for estimating cancer incidence in small areas.


    The outcome for each cancer site was the incidence of disease that had reached a late stage at the time of diagnosis.

    Two sets of predictors were used: (1) census-based demographic variables and (2) census-based demographic variables together with the cancer-specific mortality rate.


    The best models accounted for a substantial percentage of between-area variability in late-stage rates for cancer of the breast (46%), cervix (61%), and colon/rectum (58%).
