OR(95% CI)
AA are less likely to use NCI center.  We explored the SES, insurance, age at dx and marital status√ïs role in this raical disparity, it indeed contributed to the difference the OR changed from 0.29 to 0.39, but there are still a lot of unknown reason for this disparity which needs further study.
