The National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences is pleased to announce the newly updated Cancer Trends Progress Report (CTPR), an online summary of trends in US cancer control measures. The annual report summarizes the nation’s progress against cancer in relation to Healthy People 2020 targets. It includes key measures of progress along the cancer control continuum—including prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, life after cancer, and end of life—and uses national trend data to illustrate where improvements have been made.

From prevention to end of life, the report provides trends across the cancer continuum by sex, age, race, ethnicity, poverty income level, and education level. It displays those trends in relation to Healthy People 2020 targets, when available. New measures this year include Electronic Cigarettes (E-Cigarettes) on the Youth Tobacco Use page and Colorectal Cancer on the Genetic Testing page.

Screenshot of NCI Tobacco Policy Viewer with tab for smoke-free workplace laws open and map showing state and local coverage; tabs for smokefree restaurants and bars are visible but closed.

The NCI Tobacco Policy Viewer is an interactive online resource for the mapping, querying, and downloading of historical smoke-free policy data in the United States. The tool reveals variation across U.S. cities, counties, and states by the types of indoor areas that are smoke-free, length of time since the smoke-free policy came into effect, and number of people who are protected by the policy. This information was obtained from the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation

The NCI Tobacco Policy Viewer provides access to the following statistics at state, county, and city levels:

Laws requiring 100% smoke-free non-hospitality workplaces Laws requiring 100% smoke-free restaurants Laws requiring 100% smoke-free freestanding bars
