Variation in breast cancer occurrence among women in New Mexico's three major ethnic groups has not previously been assessed.
To address the descriptive epidemiology of breast cancer in New Mexico Hispanics, American Indians, and non-Hispanic whites, we calculated incidence rates from population-based registry data covering 1969-1987 and mortality data collected from 1958 to 1987.
Breast cancer incidence and mortality rates for New Mexico's non-Hispanic white women were comparable to those for white women nationwide.
In contrast, American Indian women had extremely low incidence and mortality rates for breast cancer, rates for Hispanics were intermediate, but well below those for non-Hispanic white women throughout the study period.
