|Incidence Rates Table
Purpose: Provide a table of incidence statistics for use in assessing the burden and risk for a major cancer site for the US overall and for states with cancer registries whose data have met the criteria required for inclusion in the US Cancer Statistics . The 95% Confidence Intervals for the rates provide a measure of how certain or uncertain the point estimate is and can be used to generally assess how different one rate 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.
