Resumen

ROJAS-MARTINEZ, Rosalba et al. Lung cancer mortality in Mexico, 1990-2016: age-period-cohort effect. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2019, vol.61, n.3, pp.230-239.  Epub 03-Mar-2020. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/9962.

Objective:

To update information on the mortality trend due to lung cancer in Mexico from 1990 to 2016.

Materials and methods:

Age-adjusted rates were obtained using the direct method. The percentage of annual change in the mortality of lung cancer was obtained through joinpoint analysis at the national level, by region, sex and rural-urban stratum, and in the last two the age-cohort-period effect.

Results:

There was an annual decrease in mortality rates due to this neoplasm in the last 10 years, significantly higher in men (-3.5% CI95% -4.0,-2.9) than in women (-1.9% CI95% -2.1,-1.7), and a generational gap between men and women and urban-rural stratum with a decreasing trend in the risk of death.

Conclusion:

Mortality trends due to lung cancer from 1993 to 2016 show a decrease in different magnitudes and specific periods.
