Trends in cancer mortality, cardiovascular mortality, and cancer incidence are assessed among US whites to determine whether aging of the population and smoking patterns completely account for increased cancer rates from 1973 through 1987,
For mortality, percentage changes in age-specific rates were calculated.
For cancer incidence, trends in age-specific rates across time periods and birth cohorts were assessed for several sites.
Main Outcome Measures.-National US cardiovascular and cancer mortality rates and incidence rates for smoking-related cancer, breast cancer, and all other types of cancer in 10% of the US population covered by the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program were analyzed.
