Acknowledgments

 

The preparation of these maps was made possible by a grant to the Iowa Department of Public Health from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Grant/Cooperative Agreement Number U55/CCU721906-04). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We thank the Iowa Cancer Registry and the Vital Statistics Department of IDPH for providing cancer and mortality data. We received help from Dr. Michele West from the Iowa Cancer Registry; Mr. Chetan Tiwari and Mr. Jerry Mount from the University of Iowa GIScience Laboratory and Mr. Chris Kahle from the Iowa Geological Survey. The computer program for computing the smoothed maps was written by Qiang Cai with support from NIH 1 R01CA95961-03.
