The April 2020 release of SEER*Explorer included an extensive redesign of the application layout. If you need assistance with the new interface, please View the Help Guide.

SEER*Explorer provides access to SEER incidence, SEER survival, U.S. mortality, U.S. prevalence and lifetime risk statistics including:

  • Recent Trends in SEER Incidence, 2000-2017
  • Recent Trends in U.S. Mortality, 2000-2018
  • Recent Rates for SEER Incidence, 2012-2017
  • Recent Rates for U.S. Mortality, 2013-2018
  • Long Term Trends in SEER Incidence, 1975-2017
  • Long Term Trends in U.S. Mortality, 1975-2018
  • Statistics for several subtypes of larger cancer groupings including:
    • Breast Cancer
    • Esophagus Cancer
    • Lung and Bronchus Cancer
    • Thyroid Cancer
  • Rates by Age at Diagnosis or Death
  • Stage Distribution (SEER Incidence only)
  • Recent Trends in Survival, 2000-2016
  • 5-year Relative Survival, 2009-2016
  • Relative Survival Rates by Time Since Diagnosis
  • U.S. Complete Prevalence
  • U.S. 25-year Limited Duration Prevalence

What Will Future Releases Include?

A dashboard-style presentation of multiple statistics related to the selected cancer site is currently in development. The ability to compare cancer sites will be available in future releases. The goal of this project is to replace the SEER Cancer Statistics Review with a more robust and flexible website for accessing cancer statistics.

How Can I Provide Feedback?

The goal is to improve SEER*Explorer with each new SEER data release, we are interested in receiving feedback from users. Please send comments to SEER Website Support.
