US Cancer Incidence Rates

$179 / year

The US Cancer Incidence Rates dataset includes data about cancer occurrence estimates for various cancer sites among men and women under age 18 in the United States by race and Hispanic origin between 1990 and 2014.


The US Cancer Incidence Rates dataset lists numbers of new cancer cases per one hundred thousand population in the United States by gender, race and Hispanic origin.

The dataset covers various cancer sites including lung and bronchus, colon and rectum, prostate, Breast, cervix uteri, corpus and uterus, ovary, oral cavity and pharynx, stomach, pancreas, urinary bladder, non-hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia.
It covers also main US races, data not shown if the rate is based on fewer than 16 cases for the time interval. The trend is not shown if it is based on fewer than 10 cases for at least 1 year within the time interval.
Estimates for the American Indian or Alaska Native populations are based on the Contract Health Service Delivery Area (CHSDA) counties within The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) areas.
Hispanic data exclude cases from Alaska. The race groups, white, black, Asian or Pacific Islander, and American Indian or Alaska Native, include persons of Hispanic and non-Hispanic origin. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. The North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Hispanic Identification Algorithm was used on a combination of variables to classify cases as Hispanic for analytic purposes.

Annual Percent Change (APC) was calculated by fitting a linear regression model to the natural logarithm of the yearly rates from 1990 through 2014.
