NOTE: Death rates are for 1996 to 2000 and incidence rates are for 1995 to 2000. Rates are expressed per 100,000 men and are standardized to the U.S. 2000 population.

*

PSA test in the preceding year in men ages ≥50 years with no history of prostate cancer based on 2001 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Data (7).

Statistics could not be calculated for incidence and death rates because there were <25 cases or deaths and for PSA testing because there were ≤20 respondents in the survey.
