(i) One-half of the amount remaining from the allocation to the Local Public Health Component in the State budget after the base amount under item (1) of this subsection is distributed to each county; and
(ii) The number of individuals in the county who have any of the targeted cancers divided by the number of individuals in the State residing outside of Baltimore City who have any of the targeted cancers; and
