Factors Associated with Cancer Prevalence

The association between cancer prevalence and race, income, insurance, and education was estimated using the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey   data from 1996-2007. The goal of this analysis was to provide some insight into how variations in race and socioeconomic factors influence the prevalence of cancer. This analysis was conducted for any cancer and for the four most common cancer sites i.e lung, colorectal, breast and prostate. Initially, the model was estimated using MEPS data from 2002-2007 to include body mass index, exercise and smoking behaviour as predictors in the model. This data is not available in the MEPS for the prior years. We compared the results of our model with and without these variables and concluded that they did not confound the associations between cancer prevalence and race, income, insurance, and education. Therefore, we dropped these variables from the analysis and were able to expand our data to include the years 1996-2001. This increased the number of persons with cancer in our analysis and was important for our analysis of the four most common cancer sites.
