Observed and Projected Melanoma Rates

Notes: Rates are age-adjusted. Age-period-cohort regression models were used to project melanoma incidence and mortality rates through 2030.

Data Sources: Melanoma incidence data are from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program for the period 1982–2011. Mortality data are provided by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics for the period 1982–2011.
