The current report in Cancer reports that death rates from cancer continue to decline in the United States. Researchers from the National Cancer Institute found an annual 0.4% per person decrease in cancer incidence rates between 2001 and 2010. Rates were stable among women, but declined by 0.8% per year among children and 0.6% per year among men.
Details of the decrease rates, by population group and type of cancer, can be found in Cancer, 2013,doi:10:1002/cncr.28509
