Decreased Cancer Mortality-to-Incidence Ratios with Increased Accessibility of Federally Qualified Health Centers

Description
Explores associations between access, for example one or more facilities, to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and cancer mortality-to-incidence ratios in every county in the United States using 2006-2010 data from the National Cancer Institute State Cancer Profile. Examines breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer. Data is broken down by cancer type, rural versus urban, Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designation, and race.
