Abstract

Cancer coverage in ethnic and mainstream newspapers did not accurately reflect the leading causes of cancer death in Canada. Results also suggest the need for the collection of cancer data by ethnic minority group in Canada. Without the disaggregation of cancer statistics by ethnicity, we cannot inform high-risk subgroups of the population and appropriately tailor cancer prevention and treatment programs.
