Cancer - NPCR - USCS - View Data Online
The 1999–2008 United States Cancer Statistics (USCS): Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report marks the tenth time that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have jointly produced official federal cancer incidence statistics for each state having high-quality cancer data. The report is produced in collaboration with the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.
This year's report features information on more than one million invasive cancer cases diagnosed during 2008 among residents of all 50 states, six metropolitan areas, and the District of Columbia. Incidence data are from CDC's National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and NCI's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program. Data from population-based central cancer registries in these states and metropolitan areas meet the selected criteria for inclusion in this report.
The report also provides cancer mortality data collected and processed by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Mortality statistics, based on records of deaths that occurred during 2008, are available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
