Asians Below State Average for Timely Mammograms

April 30, 2014

Fact Sheet

Author: UCLA Center for Health Policy Research

​This fact sheet provides estimates of recent mammography screening rates among racial and ethnic groups and subgroups in California based on the 2011‐2012 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS 2011‐2012). CHIS is a valuable data source that allows detection of differences in breast cancer screening rates within California’s diverse population. Though recommendations have recently changed, this fact sheet defines routine breast cancer screening as receipt of a mammogram in the past two years among three age groups of women age 40‐49, 50‐69 and 70 and older because the benefits of mammography vary by age.​
