Annual Children Under 20 Cancer Incidence Data
Annual cancer measures can be used to identify trends and patterns of cancer incidence over time. Annual measures are only available at the state level.
- The Under 20 Case Count is the number of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among children under the age of 20.
- The Under 20 Age Adjusted Rate (Per 1,000K) is the age adjusted rate of newly diagnosed malignant cancers among children under the age of 20 per 1,000,000 population under the age of 20. 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.
As part of the February 2023 update the Cancer Data source was updated to come directly from the State Health Registry of Iowa, Iowa Cancer Registry. The new data source allows data to be published with a shorter delay from the prior National SEER Data source. Due to this change the measures published for 2000-2016 may be slightly different than previously available.
