United States Cancer Statistics (USCS)

Technical Notes: Contributors

Contributor: National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR)
NPCR registries cover 96% of the U.S. population. In November 2013, CDC received information on more than 22 million invasive cancer cases diagnosed during 1995–2011. More than 1 million new invasive cancer cases are added each year.

Contributor: Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program
The SEER Program currently collects and publishes data on cancer incidence and survival from 14 population-based cancer registries and 3 supplemental registries covering approximately 28% of the U.S. population.

Contributor: National Vital Statistics System (NVSS)
The nation's vital statistics are available from NVSS, which is maintained by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). These vital statistics are provided through state-operated registration systems and are based on vital records filed in state vital statistics offices.

For a list of national partner organizations, visit Partners. Those that are crucial to the success of cancer registration and cancer surveillance in the United States include the American Cancer Society,* the American College of Surgeons,* the American Joint Committee on Cancer,* the National Cancer Registrars Association,* and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.*
