It describes the cancer burden in Michigan in terms of morbidity and mortality and the human costs associated with cancer to the extent to which data are available at this time. Six cancer sites are presented: breast, cervical, colorectal, lung, prostate, and ovarian.
Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey www.michigan.gov/brfs
The Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey is a statewide telephone survey of Michigan residents, aged 18 years and older. It is the only source of state specific, population-based estimates of the prevalence of various behaviors, medical conditions, and preventive health care practices among Michigan adults. The results of the annual survey are used by public health agencies, academic institutions, non profit organizations, and other stakeholders to develop and evaluate programs that promote the health of Michigan citizens.
Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey — Supplemental Cancer Questions Analysis, 2009-2010(Michigan Public Health Institute and Michigan Department of Community Health; August 2011) (available as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file)** The Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Control Program collaborates on a yearly basis with the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) office of the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) to add cancer-related questions to the state BRFSS. These special questions targeting the cancer-related behaviors and knowledge within the Michigan adult population are tailored to meet the need of the program for information regarding progress in achieving outcomes of the program’s strategic plan. The 2009-2010 report includes results of data analyses for the following modules: Breast/Ovarian Risk (2009); Skin Cancer (2009); Cervical Cancer (2009-2010); Cancer Genomics/Family History (2010); and Cancer Survivorship (2010).
The Special Cancer Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (SCBRFS) is an ongoing surveillance designed to measure progress towards achieving several Goals and Maintenance Projects of the Michigan Cancer Consortium (MCC). The first baseline SCBRFS was conducted in 2001-2002. The SCBRFS was repeated in 2004, 2006, and 2008. Results from subsequent surveys can be compared against baseline data in order to evaluate the progress in cancer-related behaviors and knowledge within the Michigan adult population. The Michigan Department of Community Health Cancer Prevention and Control Section provides the funding for conducting the SCBRFS. The survey was designed and coordinated by evaluation staff at the Michigan Public Health Institute, and data collection was performed by the Office of Survey Research of the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.

CDC — Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data www.cdc.gov/brfss Established in 1984 by the CDC, the BRFSS is a state-based system of health surveys that collects information on health risk behaviors, preventive health practices, and health care access primarily related to chronic disease and injury. For many states, the BRFSS is the only available source of timely, accurate data on health-related behaviors. BRFSS data are collected monthly in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. More than 350,000 adults are interviewed each year, making the BRFSS the largest telephone health survey in the world. States use BRFSS data to identify emerging health problems, establish and track health objectives, and develop and evaluate public health policies and programs. Many states also use BRFSS data to support health-related legislative efforts.

Healthy People 2020: Cancer www.healthypeople.gov/2020/topicsobjectives2020/overview.aspx?topicid=5
The cancer objectives for Healthy People 2020 support monitoring trends in cancer incidence, mortality, and survival to better assess the progress made toward decreasing the burden of cancer in the United States. The objectives reflect the importance of promoting evidence-based screening for cervical, colorectal, and breast cancer by measuring the use of screening tests identified in the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations. The objectives for 2020 also highlight the importance of monitoring the incidence of invasive cancer (cervical and colorectal) and late-stage breast cancer, which are intermediate markers of cancer screening success.
Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) http://hints.cancer.gov/
The National Cancer Institute fielded the first Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) in 2002-2003; subsequent surveys followed in 2005 and 2007. HINTS routinely collects nationally representative data about the American public's use of cancer-related information. The survey: provides updates on changing patterns, needs, and information opportunities in health; identifies changing communications trends and practices; assesses cancer information access and usage; provides information about how cancer risks are perceived; and offers a testbed to researchers to test new theories in health communication.
HINTS Briefs http://hints.cancer.gov/briefs.jsp HINTS Briefs provide a snapshot of noteworthy, data-driven research findings from the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS). The Briefs introduce population-level estimates for specific questions in the survey and summarize significant research findings that are a result of analyzing how age, race and gender influence specific outcomes. Many Briefs summarize research findings from recent peer-reviewed journal articles that use HINTS data.

Intercultural Cancer Council (ICC) Caucus — From Awareness to Action: A Renewed Call to Eliminate the Unequal Burden of Cancer(available as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file)* http://icc-caucus.org/ICC_Caucus_Action_Plan.pdf
To help determine why ethnic minority and poor populations do not share equally in the improvements in cancer survival now enjoyed by other Americans and what can be done to reduce the unequal burden of cancer, the ICC Caucus compiled the most up-to-date information about disparities in cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality among the nation’s minorities and the medically underserved. Based upon this assessment, the ICC issued this report in April 2008 as a nationwide call to action.
