AbstractOne woman in nine can expect to develop breast cancer during her lifetime and one in 25 will die from the disease. Statistically low incidences of breast cancer are found in Newfoundland and Labrador, the territories, and northern areas of most provinces. Otherwise, each province has one or more pockets of significantly high breast cancer incidence. These are often located in more southerly areas, but they do not seem to be restricted to either urban or rural areas alone. Breast cancer rates are a health status indicator. They can be used to help assess health conditions. Health status refers to the state of health of a person or group, and measures causes of sickness and death. It can also include peoples assessment of their own health.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
