Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ...THE DEATHS FROM CANCER OF THE STOMACH, AND THE PROPORTION IN 1000 DEATHS FROM CANCER OF WHICH THE SEAT IS KNOWN. Ou the other haud, if we rely on the proportion of deaths from cancer as compared with deaths from all knowu causes in comparing urban with rural mortality, it indicates too low a proportion of deaths in the cities, owing to the great number of deaths of infants, iu whom cancer is not frequent. The best way to avoid this source of error with the data at our command is to make separate comparisons for the deaths under 5 years, and also for certain other groups of ages. Thus we lind, from table 124, that of 1,000,000 deaths from known causes, the number of deaths reported as due to cancer is, iu the large cities, for those dying under years of age, males 602, females 702, while iu the rural districts for the same age it is, males 915, females 1,135. Between the ages of 15 and 65 the proportion in cities is, males 24,223, females 56,939, while in the rural districts it is, males 19,754, females 37,811', and for all deaths over 65 years of age the proportions are, iu cities, males 35,097, females 46,096, and iu the rural districts, males 34,608, females 46,220. Cancer is a disease which aflects all ages, but in very unequal proportions. Thus, out of the 8,193 cases reported as occurring in females, the proportion of deaths occurring under 5 years of age was 15.95 per 1000; from 5 to 10, 2.82 per 1000; from 10 to 15,1.60 per 1000; and from this period the proportion gradually rises in each quinquennium, until between the ages of 50 and 55 it reaches 130.18 per 1000, and thence again gradually diminishes.
