19.4 Small geographic area characteristics and cancer risk

Figure 19.3 Adjusted relative risks (with 95% confidence intervals) of uterine cancer by socio-economic characteristics of geographic area of residence


Uterine cancer was more common in NI than RoI in 1995-2007 (RR=1.11, 95%CI=1.05-1.18), a difference not explained by variations in population density or small-area socio-economic characteristics (Figure 19.3)

Other than this difference, there was minimal variation in uterine cancer risk across Ireland, with no significant relationship to population density or small-area socio-economic characteristics.
