SEER Cancer Statistics Review, 1975-2005

The SEER Cancer Statistics Review (CSR), a report of the most recent cancer incidence, mortality, survival, prevalence, and lifetime risk statistics, is published annually by the Cancer Statistics Branch of the NCI. The scope and purpose of this work are consistent with a report to the Senate Appropriations Committee (Breslow, 1988) which recommended that a broad profile of cancer be presented to the American public on a routine basis. This edition includes statistics from 1975 through 2005, the most recent year for which data are available.

The contents of the Cancer Statistics Review are provided in sections by cancer site and topical groupings. Pages from the CSR can also be extracted from the CSR sections and grouped into custom-made PDFs using the CSR search.
