What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted incidence rate for lung and bronchus cancers in cases per 100,000 population.
Why this is important: 
More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. In 2002, lung cancer accounted for more deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer combined. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer for all males in the U.S., as well as for white and American Indian/Alaska Native females, and is the third most common cancer among black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Hispanic females. In the United States in 2009, it is estimated that there were 219,440 new cases and 159,390 deaths from lung cancer.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 2,607 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
