I wonder whether the cause of the cancer, either HPV or tobacco use, varies among different socioeconomic classes and could affect outcomes.  It's known that there is a higher percentage of poorer Americans use tobacco, and that, at least for some other kinds of SCC, those caused by HPV are more easily cured than the ones caused by tobacco use.  It doesn't really tell in this article if a difference in cause was accounted for.
