The purpose of this study is to tests several research questions in regards to breast cancer. The first question explores the differences between different age groups and different ethnicities and when a woman gets her first mammogram. The second question determines whether a relationship exists between age and ethnicity and when a woman gets her first mammogram. The methods used in this study were extracted from the California Health Information Survey (CHIS). The participants included woman ages 18–85 in California of all major ethnicities. The results supported the literature and the research questions. It was found that there was a significant difference between the age and ethnic groups tested. Additionally it was determined that both age and ethnicity had a correlation as to when a woman gets her first mammogram. It was concluded that there were limitations as a result of the questions asked in the survey.
