Abstract

A population characterization is a table containing the qualities and characteristics of a sample population averaged from different individuals. Characteristics may include BMI, years of cigarette use, or body weight. In our study, we were given data of the characteristics of two populations, one of which was cancer-free while the other had cancer-incidents. Using the data, we compared the demographic and health behavior variables between cancer-free and cancer-incident participants at the baseline. Increased smoking status, alcohol consumption, and BMI lead to increased risks of cancer incident.
