    U.S. Cancer Statistics 2019 Data Are Ready for Your Use



    Dear Colleague,


    New data on cancers diagnosed through 2019 are now available. U.S. Cancer Statistics are the official federal cancer statistics, providing cancer information on the U.S. population.


    These statistics combine cancer registry data from CDC's National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program and include important clinical, demographic, and outcome data to provide a comprehensive view of the cancer burden in the United States.


    Why use U.S. Cancer Statistics data?


    Many people use the data to understand how cancer affects the nation and people in their state and county, create and evaluate prevention programs, conduct research, act to reduce health disparities, and improve cancer outcomes for all.


    How can I access the latest U.S. Cancer Statistics data?


    Data Visualizations Tool

    Do more than just read cancer data-see the data with the Data Visualizations tool. This year we have added state-level survival, prevalence, and stage data. These data will help public health professionals, decision makers, researchers, and others understand the cancer burden at their state level.


    The tool includes interactive graphics and data interpretations. You can create and export presentation-ready trend graphs, maps, and tables by state, county, and demographic characteristics. These features make it easier for you to find the information you need to understand, prevent, and control cancer.


    Public Use Databases

    Researchers can use the public use databases to take a deeper dive into cancer incidence and population data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. With more than 33 million cases and 19 years of data available (2001 to 2019), this is a valuable resource for examining populations by demographic and cancer characteristics.
