Cancer Mortality Maps
Shows mortality rates by sex, race, age, and year at the State, State Economic Area or County Level .

Interactive PC-based software module developed to perform multiple primary analyses with the goal of facilitating research into the etiology of second cancers. It calculates standardized incidence ratios by:

  • Second cancer site
  • Histology
  • Treatment
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Calendar year
  • Age and time since diagnosis
  • Registry

It utilizes NCI's SEER database. The program allows scientists within and outside of NIH to test hypotheses about the relationships between two cancers on their PC.
