This study used state-wide registries in 11 southern states to evaluate outcomes  of NSCLC treatment among black and white patients.  More blacks were diagnosed at later stages.  Survival for men was worse than for women, adjusted for covariates (HR 1.41).  Lung cancer mortality was similar for blacks and whites (HR 0.99).
