The Report to the Nation is released each year in a collaborative effort by the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Cancer Institute, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.

The Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer (1975-2012) shows that death rates continued to decline for all cancers combined, as well as for most cancer sites for men and women of all major racial and ethnic populations.

Some findings from the report:

  • Tobacco control efforts have contributed to lower rates of lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women, as well as many other types of cancer.
  • Obesity and type 2 diabetes can cause cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, which can progress to liver cancer and is associated with excessive alcohol use
  • 8 to 16 percent of liver cancer deaths are attributed to excessive alcohol use

The findings from the report illustrate how collaboration to reduce key risk factors can lead to the health outcomes we are targeting, and additional positive health outcomes like reductions in cancer morbidity and mortality.
