*UADT cancer mortality attributable to smoking, ** not attributable to smoking.

Average lung cancer rates for 35–69 year old male smokers of CPS II study was 22.2 per 100,000 and for non-smokers the rates were 6 per 100,000.

ǂ Neighborhood income quintile divided in lowest = poorest, middle = poorer + middle, and highest = richer + richest.
