Risk Factors Dataset

Overview

This dataset may be useful to people interested in exploring the distribution of breast cancer risk factors in US women. The dataset includes information from 6,318,638 examinations receiving mammography within the BCSC between January 2000 and December 2009. This dataset includes participant characteristics that have been previously shown to be associated with breast cancer risk, including age, race/ethnicity, family history of breast cancer, age at menarche, age at first birth, breast density, use of hormone replacement therapy, menopausal status, BMI, history of biopsy, and history of breast cancer. These data can be used to provide information on the distribution of breast cancer risk in the general population or to explore relationships among breast cancer risk factors. See the Risk Factors Dataset Documentation for more information about the variables included in the dataset.
