  1. Notes: The response variable, neighborhood tenure, was a 5-level ordinal variable: less than 1 year (n = 1091), 1–3 years (n = 2201), 4–10 years (n = 3692), 11–20 years (n = 3557), and more than 20 years (n = 6718) among those with cancer; the corresponding sample sizes among those without cancer were 21,574, 34,090, 38,919, 26,503, and 30,964. The total crude sample size was 17,259 and 152,050 for those with and without cancer, respectively. Covariates were selected using forward selection steps (entry significance level = 0.05) in an unweighted model before included in the final model, where we applied survey procedures to take into account NHIS sample design
