Missouri's cancer data are available in several formats.

InstantAtlas Missouri Data Maps: The MCR-ARC presents county level health data for the state of Missouri in a dynamic new report generator. InstantAtlas is an interactive, user-friendly system for visualizing health-related data in which a wide range of health indicators can be viewed in either single or double map displays combined with tables, time-series charts, bar charts and scatter plots.

MCR-ARC County-specific Data: View the top-ten cancer sites for any Missouri county with the help of our interactive map.

Cancer Incidence MICAs (Missouri Information for Community Assessment) is produced by DHSS's Bureau of Health Informatics in the Section of Epidemiology for Public Practice. These MICAs allow the user to create tables showing cancer incidence by year, age, sex, race, cancer site, stage, grade, and geographic area down to county (with some restrictions to protect confidentiality). These MICAs provide the user with valuable cancer incidence data for 1996 through 2007 and are intended to be used by the general public, as well as researchers, local public health agencies, and others.

Cancer Mortality MICA - The Death MICA provides data on deaths of Missouri residents.

United States Cancer Statistics - 1999-2007 Incidence: Compiled by the CDC, NCI and NAACCR, this useful site contains official federal statistics from 50 states and the District of Columbia. Graphs/charts include: Top 10 cancers by geographic area, State vs. national comparisons and Selected cancers ranked by state.

CINA - Cancer In North America: is a publicly available data source which provides access to incidence data on all NAACCR major and minor cancer sites (including pediatric groups) for North America, the United States and Canada, with individual state or province-specific data available.

Cancer Incidence in Five Continents (CI5): Compiled by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the 1998-2002 dataset contained in Vol. IX represents MCR's first appearance in CI5. Data from 28 NPCR-funded programs, as well as the NPCR aggregate, is now available in Globocan, the internet version of Cancer in Five Continents.

National Cancer Database: The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) is a joint program of the Commission on Cancer (CoC) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) and is a nationwide oncology outcomes database for more than 1,400 CoC-Approved Cancer Programs in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Community Health Status Indicators: The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has provided a website where the public can access and download data and information related to local communities. The Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) report contains over 200 measures for each of the 3,141 United States counties allowing users to compare similar counties while community profiles can be displayed on maps or downloaded in a brochure format.
