The CDC mapped out where people with cancer live in the US

The CDC mapped out where people with cancer live in the US

According to the CDC, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US. And over the last couple of decades, cancer death rates have fallen (with the exception of a few types of cancer: liver, pancreatic, and endometrial cancer 1).

But, in order to get a better look at the incidence of cancer and cancer death rates, by state, the CDC mapped out the data. Check out the pics below:2

This map looks at the rate of new cancer cases by state per 100,000 people. This is specifically looking at 2013, which is the most recent year available. The darker the color, the higher the rate.

The CDC was also able to capture the rates of cancer deaths in the US per 100,000 people. “Cancer counts and rates are essential to measuring progress and targeting action toward this major cause of death among Americans,” the CDC said.

The data also shows how rates of new cancers have gone down in some states over the years — in particular Illinois and most of the western US.

The page also provided breakdowns of the leading new cancer cases alongside the 10 types of cancer that caused the highest rate of cancer deaths in 2013. Lung and bronchial cancer was the leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women, while the highest rates of new cancer were breast for women and prostate for men.
