Annual Brain and Nervous System Cancer Incidence Data

Annual cancer incidence measures can be used to identify trends and patterns of cancer incidence over time. Annual measures are only available at the state level. County level cancer incidence measures are available as five year aggregate data.

Measure Description:

  • The Cancer Count is the number of newly diagnosed malignant cancers.
  • The Crude Rate (Per 100K) is the rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers per 100,000 population
  • The Age Adjusted Rate (Per 100K) is the age adjusted rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers per 100,000 population. Age adjustment to the 2000 Standard US Census is done to allow direct comparison of rates in counties and state with different population age distributions.
