For sample adults who had ever been told that they had a kind of cancer other than the kinds listed on the survey form (CNOTHR), CNOTHRAG reports how old the person was when this "other kind" of cancer was first diagnosed.

Related Variables 

A series of variables report age at first diagnosis of the specific types of cancer listed on the survey form:

  • mouth, lip, or tongue cancer (CNMOTHAG)

  • skin cancer of an unknown type (CNSKDKAG)

  • soft tissue (muscle or fat) cancer (CNSOFTAG)

CNOTHRAG must be interpreted relative to these variables, because CNOTHRAG refers to age at diagnosis of a type of cancer not included in the above list.


This variable is completely comparable over time.
