Cancer Incidence, Mortality, and Patient Survival in the United States
This chapter presents current estimates for cancer incidence, mortality, and survival in a large subgroup of the U.S. population based on the results of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. The SEER Program is an ongoing contract-supported program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) that funds and coordinates the collection of cancer data in population-based cancer registries located throughout the United States. These registries, although not randomly selected, are thought to be reasonably representative of the U.S. population; a number of the registries cover diverse populations of particular epidemiologic interest. The program publishes incidence, mortality, and survival data annually.
