The association of race and marital status with survival during a 10 year period after a breast cancer diagnosis is described.
The data for this study were obtained from the Metropolitan Detroit Cancer Surveillance System, a participant in the National Cancer Institute's SEER program.
The study sample was 10,778 women (85.6% white and 14.4% black) diagnosed with incident invasive breast cancer between 1973 and 1978.
Marital status was significantly associated with race, but had only a weak relationship with length of survival in a multivariate model predicting 10 year survival.
However, race was strongly related to survival.
