Two in five Iowans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. Cancer is a major burden in Iowa and throughout the US. Reducing the nation’s cancer burden requires the cooperation of many people, including providers, patients, researchers, public health professionals, policy makers and advocates, among others. In efforts to reduce the burden of cancer, it is imperative to have access to high quality data. Because of the critical need for data, cancer is a reportable disease in all 50 states. In Iowa, cancer data are collected by the State Health Registry of Iowa, also known as the Iowa Cancer Registry (ICR).
