    New U.S. Cancer Statistics data are available.

    Please help us spread the word! You can access the new data through the Data Visualizations tool and public use database –

    Data Visualizations tool

    This tool is an easy way to explore the latest U.S. Cancer Statistics data. It includes interactive graphics and text explaining the data. You can create and export presentation-ready trend graphs, maps, and tables by state, county, and demographic characteristics.

    Public use database

    The public use database for researchers includes cancer incidence and population data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This year, a rural-urban county variable has been added. With more than 28 million cases in the database and 17 years of data available (2001 to 2017), this is a powerful data source for obtaining new insights and targeting action.
