The incidence of NHL is highest in whites: it is reported to be 24.8 cases per 100,000 population in white men, compared with 20.7 and 17.6 cases per 100,000 population in Hispanic and African-American men, respectively. The incidence rates are lowest among Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans. [2]
