Maps of clusters of states with the highest mesothelioma rates in the USA
Below are maps of clusters of states with the highest mesothelioma rates in the USA. The clusters were found by counting the number of shared borders among states with the highest mesothelioma incidence and mortality rates for every combination of gender and race/ethnicity.
Included are also the lists of states with the highest mesothelioma rates.
