  • Description:
    This report provides, in tabular and graphic form, official federal statistics on cancer incidence and mortality for 2013 and trends for 1999–2013 as reported by CDC and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Data in this report come from the United States Cancer Statistics (USCS) system (1), which includes cancer incidence data from population-based cancer registries that participate in CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and NCI’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program reported as of November 2015 and cancer mortality data from death certificate information reported to state vital statistics offices as of June 2015 and compiled into a national file for the entire United States by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) National Vital Statistics System (NVSS).

    This report presents information on new cancer cases and deaths for 2013. The number and rate of cancer cases and deaths are stratified by the primary cancer sites as reported for 2013; information is provided by demographic characteristic (e.g., sex, age, race, and ethnicity) and primary cancer site (68 selected sites among men and 72 selected sites among women). Age-adjusted cancer incidence and death rates are shown by primary site and year for the period 1999–2013. Age-adjusted cancer incidence and death rates for the most common sites are shown by race, sex, and ethnicity for 2013, the most recent diagnosis year for which incidence data are available. Maps of the United States display age-adjusted cancer incidence and death rates, presented by quartiles, for 2013. Time trends in age-adjusted cancer incidence and death rates during 1999–2013 are shown for all sites combined, colorectal, lung and bronchus, prostate, and female breast by race, sex, and ethnicity.
