Unequal Impact II: Māori and Non-Māori Cancer Statistics by Deprivation and Rural-Urban Status 2002-2006 provides specific information about the unequal distribution of cancer outcomes for Māori and Non-Māori.
Produced as the follow on to the first cancer chart book 'Unequal Impact: Māori and Non-Māori Cancer Statistics 1996-2001', this second publication further investigates the role of area deprivation and rural-urban status on Māori and Non-Māori cancer incidence, stage at diagnosis, survival and mortality.
The chartbook is divided into five sections. The background section provides contextual information, a brief description of the data sources and methods used to analyse the data, and data on the distribution of Māori and non-Māori populations by deprivation and rural–urban status. Section two summarises selected findings from throughout the chartbook, focused on all cancers combined and seven key cancers (breast, cervical, colorectal, lung, prostate, stomach, uterine). The following three sections include the detailed tables, firstly on Māori and non-Māori outcomes, then by area deprivation, then by rural–urban status.
There has been a revision to page 55, Table 3.5: Male cancer registrations: numbers, age-standardised rates, Māori: non-Māori rate ratios 2002–2006.
