Abstract
This report presents Alaska Native cancer survival rates and stage of disease at diagnosis. Data on survival and stage at diagnosis are given for all cancers combined, and for select primary cancer sites (the organ in which the cancer first began). Survival rates are given for only those cancers for which there were enough patients to calculate reliable estimates. The focus is on five-year relative survival rates because these rates are most commonly used in the cancer literature and most appropriate for comparisons between populations. For the two time periods used in calculation of survival rates, specifically 1969-83 and 1984-94, the authors determined follow-up status through 1994. This report compares survival rates for Alaska Natives with those of US Whites. These survival rates are specific for Alaska Natives and cannot be extrapolated to American Indian or other indigenous populations.
