The 1999–2014 United States Cancer Statistics: Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report contains the official federal government statistics for cancer incidence (new cases) and mortality (deaths) in the United States. USCS includes incidence data from CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program, and mortality data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, covering 100% of the U.S. population.
This report shows that in 2014, 1,596,486 Americans received a new diagnosis of invasive cancer, and 591,686 Americans died of this disease (these counts do not include in situ cancers or the more than 1 million cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancers diagnosed each year).
You can access USCS data at www.cdc.gov/uscs. National, regional, and state-specific cancer incidence and death data are available for each year from 1999 through 2014, and for 2010–2014 combined, by sex, age, race, ethnicity, geographic region, and cancer site.
