Cancer Facts & Figures 2013 Supplemental Data

This supplemental data set provides the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2013 by state for 20 cancer sites and by age group for the four major sites (lung, breast, colorectum, and prostate). Also included is the lifetime probability of developing and dying from cancer for 23 cancer types and the estimated number of cancer survivors who were diagnosed within the past 5 years by state. These data can be used as a resource for cancer control planning at the state level, as well as to address questions from the media or constituents. Divisions are encouraged to share this information with staff and volunteers, and to use it with state and local officials, reporters, and other public health and advocacy groups in local communities.
