Abstract The results of this study shed light on groups of people with shared characteristics that may be at higher risk for colorectal cancer incidence and mortality based on non-compliance with recommended screening tests. The study showed Missouri has a slightly different pattern of colorectal cancer screening prevalence than the US. Public health efforts need to promote colorectal screening to at-risk Missourians, and should consider strategies that encourage jointly screening for various chronic diseases.
