Population-Based Cancer Survival in the United States (2001-2009
This supplement to Cancer provides survival estimates by race (black vs white), state of residence at the time of diagnosis, and stage of disease at the time of diagnosis for 9 solid tumors in men and women and for acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children. The information contained in this supplement provides a unique perspective concerning cancer survival at the state, regional, and national levels that can be used by cancer control planners and policy makers to help target and evaluate state-based cancer control strategies.  The supplement highlights the work of 30 people throughout the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, as well as international, national, and state partners in the cancer surveillance communities. These data come from 33 statewide cancer registries covering 80% of the US population.  Data are from 37 statewide cancer registries that participated in the CONCORD-2 study, covering approximately 80% of the US population. Each of the 10 cancer-specific articles includes clinical and cancer control perspectives. These perspectives highlight how clinical practice may have had an impact on population-based cancer survival trends, and how states funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program can use population-based survival data, along with incidence and mortality data, to inform cancer control activities.
