Cause-Specific Cancer Survival

Cause-Specific Cancer Survival

Cause-specific survival adjusts the observed survival for competing causes of death by only counting deaths due to the specific cancer site. The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) uses a specially created SEER Cause-Specific Death Classification variable that includes death from the specific cancer site, as well as any other causes of death that are likely to also be directly due to the specific cancer site. Deaths from other, unrelated causes are censored. The following tables are provided for major cancer sites, by race and ethnicity, along with the 95% confidence interval of the survival percentage.

Cause-Specific Survival for Malignant Cancers Diagnosed 2007-2016

By Primary Site and Race/Ethnicity; Grouped by Sex—Males and Females, Males, and Females on separate tabs.

Please Note: Cause-specific survival calculation only considers deaths directly related to the cancer site, and does not require life table data. Therefore, survival rates may be generated for Hispanics, non-Hispanics, and other groups in Texas.
