The Cancer Burden in Michigan: Selected Statistics — 1993-2011 This report was developed by the Michigan Public Health Institute Cancer Epidemiology and Evaluation Cancer staff in support of the Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Control Program and the Michigan Cancer Consortium. 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.
The Special Cancer Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (SCBRFS) is an ongoing surveillance designed to measure progress towards achieving several priorities 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.
Ovarian Cancer Knowledge, Attitudes, and Screening Practices of Women in Michigan, 2008 (published September 2010) (available as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file)*
This report presents information about the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of Michigan women related to ovarian cancer. It draws upon self-reported information from three large Michigan surveys: 1) the 2008 Special Cancer Behavioral Risk Factor Survey, which targeted men and women 40 years of age and older; 2) the 5-City Supplemental Survey, which targeted African-American men and women 18 years of age and older from five Michigan cities (Detroit, Flint, Lansing, Pontiac, and Saginaw); and 3) the 2008 Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey, which targeted men and women 18 years of age from across the state. Results from each survey are presented in separate sections.
