Cancer Mortality Rates

Posted by Laura on March 31, 2015

Calculating Cancer Mortality Rates for a population is collected by the National Center of Health Statistics. They are classified by age, cancer site, race and sex.

Improvement of treatment for cancer can come from these rates. Hospital registries on cancer collect information about cancer patients. Specific diagnosis of cancer can further break down the statistics on cancer mortality rates.
