Tabulations for cancer mortality are available for 2001 and 2005, and they are broken down by age, sex, and ICD-10 codes. The report also provides total annual deaths and the leading causes of death from 1910 to 2005. Estimates of cancer prevalence for select sites are given for 2000-2020. Before 2008 this report was published biennially.
