To better understand cancer mortality among Hispanic populations in the United States, we explored the relationships between Hispanic settlement patterns and breast and colorectal cancer mortality. Mortalities aggregated to the four Hispanic settlement types showed a consistent trend, with Long-Established populations demonstrating the highest mortality rates. These mortality patterns warrant further research including population level acculturation, access to care, and socioeconomic characteristics.
