New York Cancer Rates on Google Maps

Map Cancer

This Google Maps shows New York Male Lung Cancer Rates by Zip Code. The map uses coloured polygons to show if each zipcode area is above or below the projected rate of lung cancer.

Green areas on the map show locations with cancer rates lower than the projected rate. Yellow and red areas indicate higher than expected rates. If you roll your mouse over any of the zipcode polygons you can view how far the area deviates from the average.

The map includes a search engine so that you can quickly find a zipcode area. Next to the map nearby zipcode areas are also displayed in list form, with the areas with higher than expected cancer rates at the top.
