The Cancer Trends Progress Report, continually updated since its first issue in 2001, summarizes our nation's advances against cancer in relation to Healthy People targets set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report, intended for policy makers, researchers, and public health professionals, includes key measures of progress along the cancer control continuum and uses national trend data to illustrate where improvements have been made. New measures this year include Processed Meat Consumption, Genetic Testing, Long Term Trends in Adult Cigarette Use, Inorganic Arsenic Exposure, UV Exposure and Sun-Protective Behaviors By Sun Sensitivity, and Overweight in Cancer Survivors.
The report, available only online, can be printed in part or in its entirety. Portions of the report are updated annually, while other sections are updated as new data become available. The full report is updated every year.
