Complete Indicator Profile of Incidence of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Definition

Incidence rate of non-Hodgkin lymphoma for a defined population in a specified time interval. Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population. Rates are per 100,000 population.

Numerator

Number of new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among a defined population in a specified time interval.

Denominator

Defined population in a specified time interval.

Why Is This Important?

In New Jersey over 1,000 males and 900 females were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma during 2009.

Risk factors for non-Hodgkin lymphoma include: older age; male gender; exposure to benzene; exposure to certain herbicides and pesticides; high doses of radiation; chemotherapy; immunodeficiency due to disease or medical treatments (e.g. AIDS, organ tranplantation); certain autoimmune diseases; history of certain types of infection; and obesity.

How Are We Doing?

Between 1990 and 2009, the age-adjusted incidence rate of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in New Jersey males increased from about 22 cases per 100,000 to about 24 cases per 100,000. Among New Jersey females, the incidence rates increased from about 15 cases per 100,000 in 1990 to about 17 cases per 100,000 in 2009. The lifetime risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma is 1 in 43 for men and 1 in 52 for women.

Data Notes

Incidence rates (cases per 100,000 population per year) are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population (19 age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-9, ... , 80-84, 85+). Rates are for invasive cancer only (except for bladder cancer which is invasive and in situ) or unless otherwise specified. Data retrieved April 18, 2012 from New Jersey Department of Health, New Jersey State Cancer Registry, web site http://www.cancer-rates.info/nj/. Data for 2008 and 2009 are considered preliminary due to possible reporting delays.
