US Mortality Rates for Specific Cancer Types

$199 / year

This dataset contains estimates for 29 cancer-specific age-standardized mortality rates for specific cancer types at the county level for each state, the District of Columbia, and the United States as a whole for 1980-2014 (quinquennial), as well as the changes in rates during this period.

Complexity

This dataset contains the age-standardized mortality rate for both sexes combined (deaths per 100,000 population) by cancer type and sex at the county level for each state, the District of Columbia, and the United States as a whole for 1980-2014, as well as the changes in rates for each location during this period.

The data on this dataset was from study results were published in JAMA in January 2017 in “Trends and patterns of disparities in cancer mortality among US counties, 1980-2014.”

This study was conducted to answer the trends and differences in cancer mortality rates among United States counties from 1980 to 2014. IHME research used de-identified death records from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and population counts from the U.S. Census Bureau, NCHS, and the Human Mortality Database and small area estimation models in order to estimate county-level mortality rates from 29 cancers.

Specific cancer types include lip and oral cavity; nasopharynx; other pharynx; esophageal; stomach; colon and rectum; liver; gallbladder and biliary; pancreatic; larynx; tracheal, bronchus, and lung; malignant skin melanoma; nonmelanoma skin cancer; breast; cervical; uterine; ovarian; prostate; testicular; kidney; bladder; brain and nervous system; thyroid; mesothelioma; Hodgkin lymphoma; non-Hodgkin lymphoma; multiple myeloma; leukemia; and all other cancers combined.

In this population-based modeling study of deidentified death records from the National Center for Health Statistics, cancer mortality decreased by a relative 20.1% between 1980 and 2014; however, there were substantial differences among counties throughout this period. For many cancers, there were distinct clusters of counties in different regions with especially high mortality.

In conclusion, from 1980-2014, there were important changes in trends, patterns, and differences in cancer mortality among US counties.
