The purpose of the study was to examine the role of health care coverage, level of education, and health status on colorectal cancer (CRC) screening among African American males 50 years of age and older. The study utilized secondary data analyses using the 2007 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) adult public use data file. There were 51,048 adult survey participants of which 503 were African American males 50 years of age and older.
Chi-square analysis results between health care coverage and CRC screening yielded a statistically significant association. Similarly, chi-square analysis results between level of education and CRC screening also revealed a statistically significant association. Conversely, there was no statistically significant association between health status and CRC screening.
