What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted incidence rate for cervical cancer in cases per 100,000 females.
Why this is important: 
Cervical cancer forms in tissues of the cervix. One out of every 145 women in the United States will be diagnosed in their lifetime. Early cervical cancer can be cured by removing or destroying the pre-cancerous or cancerous tissue. Human papillomavirus (HPV), which is transmitted through sexual contact, has been identified as the main cause of cervical cancer. In 2006, the FDA approved a new vaccine against HPV which prevents cervical cancer. In the United States in 2009, it is estimated that there were 11,270 new cases and 4,070 deaths from cervical cancer.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 67 Florida counties.
