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.
