About United States Cancer Statistics (USCS)
The United States Cancer Statistics: 2011 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report contains official federal government cancer statistics for cancer incidence in and mortality in 99% of the U.S. population.
The United States Cancer Statistics: 1999–2011 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report (USCS) combines cancer registry data from CDCs National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institutes Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program to produce a new set of official federal statistics on cancer incidence (newly diagnosed cases) for a single year. Statistics from CDCs National Vital Statistics System also are included on cancer deaths for a single year in each state.
The current report provides state-specific and regional data for cancer cases diagnosed and for cancer deaths that occurred in 2011, the most recent year for which incidence data are available. It includes cancer incidence data obtained from registries in 49 states, 6 metropolitan areas, and the District of Columbia, covering 99% of the U.S. population. Mortality data from all states and the District of Columbia also are included and cover 100% of the U.S. population.
Cancer incidence and mortality statistics are reported for 68 selected primary cancer sites and subsites for men of all ages, and 72 selected primary cancer sites and subsites for women of all ages. These data are presented in the following categories—
- By geography: all U.S. combined, U.S. Census regions and divisions, states, and selected metropolitan areas.
- By race and ethnicity: all races combined, whites, blacks, Asians/Pacific Islanders, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and Hispanics/Latinos.
The section on childhood cancer includes incidence data for more than 14,000 cancer cases and 2,000 cancer deaths among children and adolescents aged 19 years or younger. These data are presented by race, sex, age, and primary site as well as by specific cancer types.
