    • Description:
      The United States Cancer Statistics : 1999–2011 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report contains the official federal government statistics for cancer incidence (new cases) and mortality (deaths) in the United States. USCS includes incidence data from CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program, and mortality data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. The report is produced in collaboration with the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.

      The current report includes cancer cases diagnosed and cancer deaths that occurred from 1999 through 2011. Each year of data includes more than 1 million cases of invasive cancer, including about 14,000 cases among children younger than 20 years, and more than 574,000 deaths from cancer. The population coverage varies by diagnosis year. In 2011, cancer incidence data were obtained from central cancer registries in 49 states, 6 metropolitan areas, and the District of Columbia (covering 99% of the U.S. population), and cancer mortality data were obtained from all states and the District of Columbia (covering the entire U.S. population). These data are used to assess the cancer burden, inform and evaluate prevention efforts, and address disparities.

      You can look at USCS data online at www.cdc.gov/uscs. National, regional, and state-specific cancer incidence and death data are available for each year from 1999 through 2011, and for 2007–2011 combined, by sex, age, race, ethnicity, geographic region, and cancer site.
