Age-specific incidence of cancer in Kingston & St. Andrew, Jamaica. Part II: 1983-1987.
West Indian Med J. 1991 Sep; 40(3):128-33.WI

Abstract

The Jamaica Cancer Registry recorded 3,652 cases of cancer in Kingston and St. Andrew during the period 1983-1987. Histological confirmation was maintained at a high level (86.3%). For males, the crude rate was 103.1 and for females, 126.5 (per 100,000 per annum). The age-standardized rates for all ages were 148.3 for males, and 160.2 for females. The Tables contain age-specific rates for each site by age and sex.
