Cancer Incidence and Rates: Leading Types by Age


Summary: Cancer incidence by age, crude rates, and age-adjusted rates

This database provides cancer incidence data, crude rates, and age-adjusted rates. It includes the leading cancers reported by the CDC.  Crude rates indicate the number of cases reported each calendar year per 100,000 population.  Age-adjusted rates are weighted averages of the age-specific (crude) rates, where the weights are the proportions of persons in the corresponding age groups of a standard million population.  See CDC for more details.
