CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) (https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/npcr/about.htm) collects data on cancer occurrence (including the type, extent, and location of the cancer), the type of initial treatment, and outcomes. The CDC-NPCR supports central cancer registries in 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdictions, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 NCI’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program (https://seer.cancer.gov/about/) collects and publishes cancer incidence and survival data from population-based cancer registries including data on patient demographics, primary tumor site, tumor morphology and stage at diagnosis, first course of treatment, and follow-up for vital status.

Together, the CDC-NPCR and NCI-SEER Programs collect data for the entire U.S. population. This national coverage enables researchers, clinicians, policy makers, public health professionals, and members of the public to monitor the burden of cancer, evaluate the successes of programs, and identify additional needs for cancer prevention and control efforts at national, state, and local levels.
