Default looking for critical illness incidence rates

I'm looking for incidence rates by age and gender for a variety of illnesses. So far googling _____________ incidence rates or critical illness rates has led me to some "fun fact" type of sites and a few tables, but nothing broken down like other data I've worked with. Any suggestions for my search?

Heart Attack and Stroke:American Heart Assoc.

Cancer:Seer

Also there is a good study by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, "Critically Canadian:Canadian Critical Illness Standalone Base Incidence Tables, 2012"

and a European Study done by Gen Re.

PM me for more details.

I'm looking for Incidence Rates for Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke.

Either separate or combined both will do.

And just a quick question, if you have separate rates available for these, you don't get the combined rate by simply adding them up, right? Do you know what's a reasonable way to add them?

PM me if you want some cancer info. SEER is pretty good for incidence, as noted previously. I have some prevalence data on hand, somewhere around here.

Are you looking for all incidence (or do you want prevalence?), or for commercial, or Medicare, etc?

For cancer, you can add up numbers for breast, colon, lung, etc, and not be that far off. Some incidence/prevalence numbers assign people to only one dx so you don't double-count. But not that many people have multiple primaries, so it's not like you'd be wildly off the mark if you do double-count. Depends on how much precision you need.

Would the Truven data help much? Or the Medicare 5% sample?

Hi,

Does anyone know where can I get the excel spreadsheets for the CIIT00 tables? I tried the link in the research paper and it does not work.

Thanks so much!!!
