Malignant Neoplasms of Trachea, Bronchus, and Lung Deaths by Age Group, United States, 2003:

Using the table below, reproduced from page 152 of the Friis and Sellers (2014) text, calculate age-specific death rates for the category of malignant neoplasms of trachea, bronchus, and lung. What inferences can be made from the age-specific death rates for malignant neoplasms of trachea, bronchus, and lung?

For purposes of calculation:

  • The total population is 2003 was 290,810,789 (males = 143,037,290; females = 147,773,499).
  • For 2003, total number of live births was 4,089,950.

In your Week Two assignment, please answer the following questions related to the measures of morbidity and mortality:

  • Calculate the crude death rates (per 100,000) for accidents, malignant neoplasms, and Alzheimer’s disease. Repeat these calculations for males and females separately.
  • Calculate the cause-specific death rates (per 100,000) for accidents, malignant neoplasms, and Alzheimer’s disease. Repeat these calculations for males and females separately.
  • What are the Proportional Mortality Ratios (PMR) (percent) for accidents, malignant neoplasms, and Alzheimer’s disease? Repeat these calculations for males and females separately.
  • Calculate the maternal mortality rate (per 100,000 live births).
  • Calculate the infant mortality rate (per 1,000 live births).
  • Calculate the crude birth rate (per 1,000 population).

When answering questions in your Week Two Assignment

  • Show calculations for solving problems using an equation editor, a clear photo, or scan of legible pen or pencil calculations either saved as an image and inserted into to your assignment document or attached as a .pdf file.
  • If doing the later, your .pdf image should be descriptively named using the following format: lastnamefirstinitialWeek1AssignmentQuestion.pdf. For example, Jane Smith would save her file as jsmithWeek2AssignmentQuestionA.pdf.
