Cancer cases and deaths on Long Island

More than 18,000 cases of cancer a year occurred on average on Long Island from 2011 through 2015, according to the most recent data available from the state Department of Health, and an average of nearly 5,274 deaths a year were reported.

Here are details on the types of cancer for that period. Rates based on fewer than four cases or deaths per year are not considered stable and should be used with caution; there are small error margins associated with each figure. This database was posted on July 5, 2018, and you can read more about a study of high rates in three communities, or about state plans to study cancer rates here.
