Cancer Incidence and Rates: All Types

Summary: Comprehensive cancer incidence data, crude rates, and age-adjusted rates

This database provides comprehensive cancer incidence data, crude rates, and age-adjusted rates.  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.  It includes all cancers reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. See CDC for more details.
