* At least one survey must be two years after first survey.

** Number of individuals with a survey before their first cancer diagnosis and also a survey after their first cancer diagnosis.

Note: The denominator for the percentages that appear in columns 3 through 6 is the Number of linked patients with one or more survey by cancer site (column 2).

The groups in columns 4 through 6 are not mutually exclusive, therefore, the percentages do not sum to 100.
