CDC and NCI Release Latest Official Federal Cancer Statistics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are pleased to announce the latest release of the U.S. Cancer Statistics, the official federal cancer statistics. This resource combines data from CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries and NCI’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program, providing the latest cancer information on the entire U.S. population.

You can access the latest data in an updated public use database and Data Visualizations tool –

Public use database

The U.S. Cancer Statistics public use database includes cancer incidence and population data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The de-identified data are available online, at no cost to researchers. With over 24 million cases in the database and 15 years of data available (cases diagnosed from 2001 through 2015), researchers can conduct scientific inquiries into rare cancers and cancer trends.

Instructions on how to access the databases and supporting documentation, including a data dictionary and analysis checklist, are available at:

Data Visualizations tool

The U.S. Cancer Statistics Data Visualizations tool is an easy way to explore and use the latest U.S. Cancer Statistics data. It includes interactive graphics and data interpretations of new cancer cases and cancer deaths. This past spring, prevalence, survival, and county-level data were added to the tool.
