In Reply We thank Cronin and Berry for their letter and for the opportunity to elaborate on our findings beyond the space limitation associated with our publication.1 We respectfully disagree that we have misinterpreted the age distribution data. We contend that an intervention policy that considers only age-associated incidence rates may be incomplete when it comes to health issues in nonwhite populations given the differences in disease patterns.
