Ever had cancer: Breast


For persons age 18 and older who indicated "Yes" to the question of if they have ever been diagnosed as having cancer or malignancy of any kind (CANCEREV), CNBRES indicates if the type of cancer diagnosed was breast cancer. Cancer variables were introduced in 2008 as part of a series of questions on cancer.

Users should note that males are not able to have values of "Mentioned" (2) for CNBRES and are effectively not in universe. Although all persons are in universe for CNBRES at the time of the interview, males who responded that they were diagnosed with breast cancer had their value of CNBRES recoded to "Not in universe" (0). Their value of CANCEREV was recoded to "Unknown-not ascertained" (8), and the corresponding values of remaining cancer variables were recoded to "Not in universe" (0).
