  1. Absolute difference in the five-year net survival (%) estimate for all patients diagnosed during 2005–2009 in each US registry obtained with (a) national, race-specific life tables and (b) state- and race-specific life tables. A negative value indicates that the estimate obtained with state- and race-specific life tables was lower than the estimate obtained with national, race-specific life tables. Absolute differences greater than 3% are shown in bold, along with the associated registry name
