CDC Releases New Public Use Cancer Database
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.

Researchers can access and analyze high-quality population-based cancer incidence data on the entire United States population. De-identified cancer incidence data reported to CDC’s National Program for Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program are available to researchers for free in public use databases that can be accessed using software developed by NCI’s SEER Program.

Cancer surveillance data from these two programs are combined to become United States Cancer Statistics (USCS), the official source for federal cancer data. Combined data from NPCR and the SEER Program include cancer incidence and population data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, providing information on more than 22 million cancer cases.
