What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to cancer.
Why this is important: 
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) defines cancer as a term used to describe diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. There are over 100 different types of cancer. According to the NCI, lung, colon and rectal, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancer lead to the greatest number of annual deaths.
The Healthy People 2020 target is to reduce the overall cancer death rate to 160.6 deaths per 100,000 population.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 58 California counties.
