Tracking the incidence of all cancer types combined allows examination of trends over time. Although this is useful information, it is important to remember that trends in specific cancers may be very different. The overall rate of all cancer types combined in Minnesota has increased less than 1% per year on average since 1988. Across Minnesota, the difference between the regions with the lowest rate and the highest rate is less than 10%.
