Welcome to the New York State Cancer Consortium!
The New York State Cancer Consortium (NYSCC) is a network of individuals and organizations that collaborate to address the cancer burden in New York State. The NYSCC and its members are guided by the strategic plan, the NYS Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2012-2017, which outlines objectives and suggested strategies to reduce the burden of cancer in NYS. We hope you use this site to learn more about cancer in New York and to further your own organization's efforts to decrease the cancer burden for all New Yorkers.

Screen for Life
The New York State Department of Health Bureau of Chronic Disease Control used data to drive its planning, implementation and evaluation of the 2014 Screen for Life public awareness campaign. This campaign used data to identify 14 counties for media use based on low screening rates and high Hispanic populations, to determine preferred types of media to use, and to evaluate the campaign compared to previous years.

Data Provided by the New York State Cancer Registry:
United States Census Data show demographic, economic and geographic factors that can affect cancer incidence and mortality on a national, state and county level. Quick Facts, on the Census homepage provides statewide information on general age, race/ethnicity, educational attainment, median household income and persons below the poverty area. County information can also be viewed through Quick Facts. Small Area Health Insurance Estimates allows a viewer to see the percentage of people (by age, race, sex and income) insured or uninsured. Information can be viewed in a chart, on a map, or through graphs.
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T., a web portal sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality provides access to data and research-tested resources to help planners, program staff, and researchers design, implement and evaluate evidence-based cancer control programs. In the State Cancer Profiles, you can create interactive graphs and maps showing 5-year rate changes in cancer mortality or incidence for many cancer sites, historic trends in mortality and incidence, comparative data displays of relationships across geography or interactive maps for states and counties showing mortality and incidence.
Youth Risk Behavioral Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six types of health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults, including tobacco use, unhealthy dietary behaviors and inadequate physical activity. Youth Online: High School YRBS allows you to view by table or graph, data for NYS. Data can be filtered by health topic, race/ethnicity or grade.
New York State Comprehensive Cancer Control Dashboard. This interactive, web-based Dashboard will be used to monitor progress of cancer prevention and control efforts in NYS and to guide organizations working toward cancer prevention and control to areas most in need of intervention. The Dashboard provides information on twenty-four of the health promotion, cancer prevention and early detection indicators identified in the New York State Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan, 2012-2017.
