National Aggregate

Five-Year Summary: July 2014 to June 2019

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 2020 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.

Service Totals by Year

This bar graph illustrates the number of women who received NBCCEDP-funded services by program year from July 2014 to June 2019.

Program year (PY) is defined as July 1 through June 30. For example, “PY20” represents July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
