Summary "Cancer Incidence in Four Member Countries (Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, and Jordan) of the Middle East Cancer Consortium (MECC) Compared with US SEER is the first comprehensive publication of the MECC Cancer Registration Project. This monograph presents information about cancer incidence for populations in Cyprus, Egypt (Gharbiah Region), Israel (Jews and Arabs), and Jordan for the period 1996-2001. The MECC findings are compared with those from the US Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. For most of the cancers described in this monograph, incidence is expressed as age-standardized incidence rates (ASRs) per 100,000 population. The ASR is a summary measure that permits comparison of incidence rates across populations while adjusting for differences in age distributions. ASRs for childhood cancers are expressed per 1 million population."--P. xiii.
