    2020 CBTRUS Report Available
     
    The Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) announces the publication by Oxford University Press of its latest report, CBTRUS Statistical Report: Primary Brain and Other Central Nervous System Tumors Diagnosed in the United States in 2013-2017. The Report is a Supplement to the Society for Neuro-Oncology's journal, Neuro-Oncology, and is available online at www.cbtrus.org through a Free-to-View web link by clicking on Reports and Tables. Data collected by CDC's National Program of Cancer Registries and NCI's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results program were analyzed resulting in an incidence rate of 23.79 cases per 100,000 (16.71 for non-malignant and 7.08 for malignant) for all primary brain and other central nervous system tumors in 2013-2017. The efforts of hospital tumor registrars, central cancer registries, and staff from NPCR and SEER to collect accurate and complete data have contributed to making this report possible.
     
    Partial funding of the 2020 CBTRUS Report was provided by CDC under Contract No. 2016-M-9030. The contents in this report are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC or NCI.
