CDC has released a public use research NPCR and SEER Incidence – United States Cancer Statistics (USCS) database that provides cancer data from all 50 U.S. states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico. This is the first time combined data from the CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program have been made available in this format.
Detailed, de-identified information on several million cancer cases from 2001 to 2014 is now available online for free, providing researchers and the interested public the opportunity to analyze these data to better understand cancer, inform coordinated efforts to address cancer through prevention, and evaluate progress in cancer control.
Instructions on how to access the database and supporting documentation, including data dictionaries and analysis checklists, are available at www.cdc.gov/cancer/public-use.
