Cancer Statistics by Demographic

According to CDC's Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, life expectancy and overall health have improved in recent years for most Americans. Despite this, not all Americans are benefiting equally. CDC monitors trends and patterns in cancer incidence and mortality and identifies which populations are disproportionately affected by the disease. Making cancer screening, information, and referral services available and accessible to all Americans can lower the high rates of cancer and cancer deaths. For more information, visit Health Disparities in Cancer.

The following pages show cancer statistics for men, women, children, people of various races and ethnicities, and people located in various geographic areas of the United States, based on data from the United States Cancer Statistics: 1999–2011 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report.
