Abstract

Incidence rates for pediatric (ages, 0 to 14 years) cancer in the state of Florida were produced for the period 1981 to 1986 and compared with national data to investigate variations in pediatric cancer incidence. Overall, Florida had an incidence rate of 12.77 per 100,000; this was not significantly higher than expected based on national rates (standardized incidence ratio, 1.0; 95% confidence interval, 0.9 to 1.0). Compared with national rates, whites residing in Florida had an increased rate of acute lymphocytic leukemia and decreased rates for soft tissue sarcomas (other than rhabdomyosarcoma), 'other leukemias,' and 'other' cancers. Nonwhites residing in Florida had increased rates for soft tissue sarcomas (other than rhabdomyosarcoma) and decreased rates of 'other' cancers. Boys in Florida had increased rates for retinoblastoma and acute lymphocytic leukemia and decreased rates for 'other leukemias' and 'other' cancers. Rates for girls were decreased for neuroblastoma and 'other leukemias.'
