Much can be learned by understanding the incidence of cancer across broad geographic ranges. We will explore much more complex interactions using publicly available data in the future, but will simply start with the incidence rate (per 100,000) for males and females from 2015 data combining state level census data with incidence rates from CDC Wonder(https://wonder.cdc.gov/).

Female Rates per 100,000 in 2015
