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.

U.S. Cancer Statistics (USCS) Fact Sheet
The USCS fact Sheet (PDF, 197 KB) is a web-based incidence and mortality report which contains official federal government cancer statistics for new cancer cases and deaths.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Cancer Rates by U.S. State
In the following CDC maps, the U.S. states are divided into groups based on the rates at which people developed or died from cancer.

CDC Interactive Cancer Atlas
CDC’s Interactive Cancer Atlas (InCA) uses USCS data to create U.S. maps that allow you to make quick comparisons including incidence or mortality rate or count, cancer site, gender, race/ethnicity, and year.

CDC Wonder
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.

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.
