AA vs. White
OR (95% CI)
AA are less likely to use NCI center.  We explored the SES, insurance, age at dx and marital statusÕs 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.
