Factors associated with screening for colorectal cancer in a population-based sample.

Author information

University of Michigan School of Public Health, USA.


The results of this study shed light on groups of people with shared characteristics that may be at higher risk for colorectal cancer incidence and mortality based on non-compliance with recommended screening tests. The study showed Missouri has a slightly different pattern of colorectal cancer screening prevalence than the US. Public health efforts need to promote colorectal screening to at-risk Missourians, and should consider strategies that encourage jointly screening for various chronic diseases.
