The Cancer Trends Progress Report, continually updated since its first issue in 2001, summarizes our nation's advances against cancer in relation to Healthy People targets set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report, intended for policy makers, researchers, and public health professionals, includes key measures of progress along the cancer control continuum and uses national trend data to illustrate where improvements have been made and where attention is demanded. New measures this year include Sleep, Melanoma of the Skin Treatment, Outdoor Tanning, and Evidence-based Smoking Cessation Aids.
