Epidemiologic studies of cancer incidence and mortality by specific sites provide investigators with important clues concerning targeting research into potential etiologies as well as cataloguing changes in survival patterns with time.

Mortality data for the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) were collected from death certificates and age-adjusted mortality rates calculated for specific types of cancer.
