About Interactive Cancer Atlas (InCA)

The Interactive Cancer Atlas (InCA) lets you create customized United States maps showing how many people were diagnosed with or died from cancer by cancer site, gender, race/ethnicity, and state during a given period.

CDC's Interactive Cancer Atlas (InCA) uses data from United States Cancer Statistics (USCS) to create United States maps that allow you to make quick comparisons. For example, you can use InCA to compare—

  • How many people were diagnosed with one of 26 types of cancer during different years.
  • The incidence or death rate for a certain type of cancer among states during one year, and how the states' rates compare to the national rates.
  • How many people died from one type of cancer vs. another type of cancer.
  • The rate of diagnosis (incidence rate) with a certain type of cancer among white, black, and Hispanic people.
  • How many men vs. women were diagnosed with a certain type of cancer during one year.

The trend data player puts the data in motion. It shows how the data changed over the years. In addition, you can download and print the data for future use.

While InCA is useful for anyone who is interested in cancer data, this tool is particularly helpful for researchers, epidemiologists, local and community health project managers, grant writers, policy makers, journalists and authors, and cancer control and prevention program staff at federal, state, and local health departments.
