 Results for white males (WM) and black males (BM) include: 1) the average annual percent change (AAPC) computed over the entire time series, 2) the onset year for the first significant decline in the proportion of latestage diagnosis (i.e. APC negative and significantly different from zero), 3) the results of the test of parallelism using a significance level α = 0.05 (R = reject, NR = non reject), and 4) the value of the B_{
rr'
} statistic that measures the number of years where the 95% confidence intervals of APC for white and black males did not overlap (Equation 6).
