National Publications and Statistics
U.S. Cancer Statistics (USCS)
National Program of Cancer Registries releases data through the Cancer Incidence and Mortality Data report to public health planners, monitors the burden of cancer and implements cancer prevention and control programs.
The CDC Wonder online query system produces age-adjusted and crude rates in tabular, map, and chart formats. Variables include year of diagnosis, state, region or division of the U.S., sex, race, ethnicity, age, primary site, and childhood cancer.
CDC U.S. State Cancer Facts
The State Cancer Facts application provides state-specific cancer data. Variables include the estimated number of new cases, deaths, and the age-adjusted mortality rates by race.
North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Cancer in North America (CINA)
The annual CINA report provides cancer incidence and mortality statistics for the U.S. and Canada and serves as the foundation for such publications as the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Facts & Figures and the U.S. Annual Report to the Nation.
National Cancer Institute CI*Rank
The CI*Rank website presents ranked, age-adjusted cancer incidence and mortality rates by state, county, and special region in the U.S. The site also presents confidence intervals for those ranks.
