Cancer Data and Statistics Tools
United States Cancer Statistics
The United States Cancer Statistics (USCS): Incidence and Mortality Web-based report contains official federal government cancer statistics for new cancer cases and deaths. For background information about USCS, visit CDC's United States Cancer Statistics feature.
State Cancer Facts
The State Cancer Facts application provides state-specific data on lung, colorectal, female breast, and prostate cancers, including the estimated number of new cancer cases, cancer deaths, and the age-adjusted mortality rates for cancer deaths by race for each state.
Interactive Cancer Atlas
CDC's Interactive Cancer Atlas (InCA) uses USCS data to create United States maps that allow you to make quick comparisons including incidence or mortality rate or count, cancer site, gender, race/ethnicity, and year. For more information about InCA, visit CDC's Interactive Cancer Atlas feature.
National Center for Health Statistics Research Data Center
CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) developed the Research Data Center (RDC) to allow researchers access to restricted data. In addition to providing access to NCHS data, the RDC also hosts restricted data from NPCR-CSS as well as a variety of other groups within the Department of Health and Human Services.
CDC WONDER is an online query system that produces age-adjusted and crude rates in tabular, map, and chart formats. Variables include year of diagnosis, state, region or division of the United States, sex, race, ethnicity, age, primary site, and childhood cancer. Data from selected registries, covering between 86% and 96% of the United States population depending on the year of diagnosis, may be accessed through CDC WONDER.
