Summary 

The United States Cancer Statistics (USCS) are the official federal cancer and mortality incidence statistics for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The data comes from the national cancer registry programs: the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program (SEER). The data are coded in ICD-O-3 and categorized in accordance with revised SEER recodes from 2003.

To ensure confidentiality, counts and rates for some variables may be suppressed.

Cancer mortality data are also available in the GHDx and through CDC Wonder which offers additional ways to explore and extract the data.
