The Occurrence of Bone and Joint Cancers and Their Association with Rural Living and Radon Exposure in Iowa
Examines primary bone and joint cancers between 1975 and 2016 to understand long-term changes in their occurrence. Utilizes the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to focus on cancer occurrence in Iowa and the related correlation between cancers and rural populations, farmland size, and residential radon levels. Includes demographic data of Iowa regions and their corresponding age-adjusted incidence (AAIR) and mortality (AAMR) rates.
