Cancer Data

The EPHT Program tracks incidence and mortality data for the following indicators:

These indicators provide cancer surveillance data. Cancer surveillance is the most well-established and extensive disease surveillance network in the United States. Centralized cancer registries in the United States conduct population-based surveillance of cancer incidence and mortality. Cancer-incidence data are collected by state health departments, which are funded by the National Program of Cancer Registries and the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results Program. Cancer-mortality data are published by the National Center for Health Statistics. The NH EPHT Program receives cancer data from the NH Cancer Registry.

However, the cancer data do have significant limitations. For example:
