Incidence of All Invasive Cancers by Race/Ethnicity, New Jersey, 2000 to 2020

Indicator Report Data View Options

  • *Preliminary data

Why Is This Important?

Many cancers are preventable and screening is effective in identifying some types of cancers in early, often highly treatable stages.


The age-adjusted rate of invasive cancer per 100,000 population. ICD-O codes: C00-C97

Data Notes

  • Data have been age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
  • Data for White, Black, and Asian/Pacific Islander do not include Hispanics. Hispanic ethnicity includes persons of any race. 2020 data are considered preliminary and should not be used in trend analyses; an approximate 10% decrease in the number of cancer cases diagnosed in 2020 compared to 2019, is partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
