CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control is pleased to announce the early release of National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) cancer incidence data for the years 1999–2008 to facilitate cancer control planning. The data are available through CDC WONDER at http://wonder.cdc.gov/cancer.html.
The data from selected NPCR registries cover between 84% and 96% of the United States population, depending on the specific year of diagnosis. This release is part of the NPCR Data Release Plan and is based on the NPCR Cancer Surveillance System 2011 data submission.
CDC WONDER is an online query system that produces age-adjusted and crude rates in tabular, map, and chart formats. Variables include year of diagnosis, state, region or division of the United States, sex, race, ethnicity, age, primary site, and childhood cancer.
The United States Cancer Statistics: 1999–2008 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report will be released later this year. In addition to cancer incidence data from NPCR-funded cancer registries, this report will include cancer incidence data from registries funded by the National Cancer Institute‘s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program, as well as cancer mortality data.
