Five-Year Summary: July 2016 to June 2021
Tables and graphs report on cancer screening and diagnostic services provided through the program in a recent 5-year period. The data represent clinical services funded directly through the NBCCEDP as reported in the April 2022 submission of the NBCCEDP Minimum Data Elements (MDE).
National aggregate data are typically used to report results from the program and as a standard to compare results of grantee programs. Comparing data across grantee programs is not advised due to extensive variation across programs. For information on interpreting the data, refer to Screening Program Data. For information on the program, refer to About the Program.
Data for the following are suppressed for programs with fewer than 200 screens, cell sizes less than 16, and rates and percentages that do not meet a test of relative standard error less than 30%, a measure of the estimate’s reliability. Differences are due to rounding.
Service Totals by Year
This bar graph illustrates the number of women who received NBCCEDP-funded services by program year from July 2016 to June 2021.
Program year (PY) is defined as July 1 through June 30. For example, “PY22” represents July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
|Women served ||1,135,829|
|Women receiving cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services||585,946|
|Women receiving breast cancer screening and diagnostic services||952,360|
Each category reports counts of unduplicated women receiving services within the 5-year period. Women may be counted in more than one category.
1: Women served includes women receiving any screening or diagnostic procedure with services funded through the NBCCEDP.

5: Includes HSIL, CIN2, CIN3, CIS, and invasive cervical cancer.
Table includes HPV and Pap tests provided to women with services funded through the NBCCEDP. An additional 612 women, not included above, were diagnosed with LSIL, HSIL, CIN1, CIN2, CIN3, CIS, or invasive cervical cancer through the NBCCEDP following a Pap test with services funded through another source.

1: Abnormals include mammogram results of: suspicious abnormality, highly suggestive of malignancy, and assessment incomplete (further imaging studies or film comparisons required).
2: Adjusted to the age distribution of NBCCEDP participants 40 years of age and older having mammograms performed in calendar year 2000.
3: Breast cancers include invasive breast cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and other in situ excluding lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS).
Table includes mammograms provided to women age 40 and older with services funded through the NBCCEDP. An additional 78 women, not included above, were diagnosed with CIS (other), DCIS, or invasive breast cancer through the NBCCEDP following a mammogram with services funded through another source.
