QuickStats: Colorectal Cancer Screening Among Adults Aged 50–75 Years, by Race/Ethnicity

During 2000–2015, among adults aged 50–75 years, the use of colorectal cancer tests or procedures increased for all racial/ ethnic groups included in the analysis.

Colorectal screening percentages more than doubled for non-Hispanic black, Hispanic, and non-Hispanic Asian adults during that period.

Despite these increases, in 2015, the prevalence of colorectal cancer screening was higher among non-Hispanic white (65.6%) adults than among non-Hispanic black (60.3%), non-Hispanic Asian (52.1%), and Hispanic (47.4%) adults.
