* Number of individuals with a baseline survey before their first cancer diagnosis and also a baseline or follow-up survey after their first cancer diagnosis.

Note:

  1. The denominator for the percentages that appear in columns 3 through 7 is the Total Number of Linked Patients with completed or partially completed surveys by cancer site (column 2). The groups in columns 3 through 7 are not mutually exclusive, therefore, the percentages do not sum to 100.
  2. (Group B + Group C) > Group A because some patients participated in more than one MHOS cohort and completed at least one baseline survey before cancer diagnosis and at least one baseline survey after first cancer diagnosis.
