U.S. Cancer Statistics Public Use Databases
Researchers can access and analyze high-quality population-based cancer incidence data on the entire United States population.
De-identified cancer incidence data reported to CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)external icon Program are available to researchers for free in public use databases that can be analyzed using software developed by NCI’s SEER Program.
Cancer surveillance data from CDC and NCI are combined to become U.S. Cancer Statistics, the official source for federal cancer data. U.S. Cancer Statistics public use databases include cancer incidence and population data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, providing information on more than 28 million cancer cases.
