Death Rates Table


Provide a table of mortality statistics for use in assessing the burden and risk for a major cancer site for the US overall or for a selected state and its counties or parishes. The Healthy People 2020External Web Site Policy objective for the US is provided in order to give perspective on how favorably or unfavorably a location compares to this overall goal. The 95% Confidence Intervals for the rates and trends provide a measure of how certain or uncertain the point estimates are and can be used to generally assess how different a rate or trend is from another.

Cancer statistics require careful interpretation. See the information page about interpret rankings for insight into interpreting cancer statistics particularly if you are a new user of cancer statistics.

The Quick Reference Guide provides an introduction to the interactive features of this table.
