Michigan Cancer Dashboard: Colorectal Cancer in Michigan

The Michigan Cancer Epidemiology staff has developed this interactive dashboard to profile information about the colorectal cancer burden across Michigan, as well as timely detection of colorectal cancers and colorectal cancer screening rates. Data are displayed in charts, tables and/or maps and cover the years 2011 through 2019. The data within this dashboard are divided into three main sections:

  • Colorectal cancer burden within Michigan (how much colorectal cancer is occurring within Michigan, specifically, colorectal cancer incidence rate [the rate of newly diagnosed colorectal cancers within Michigan] and colorectal cancer mortality rate [the rate of deaths within Michigan due to colorectal cancer]);
  • Colorectal cancer screening rates within Michigan (the percentage of Michigan residents who are receiving risk-appropriate colorectal cancer screenings); and
  • Early detection of colorectal cancer within Michigan (the stage at which colorectal cancers are being diagnosed within Michigan, indicating how advanced colorectal cancers are when first diagnosed).

In addition, this dashboard also provides a discussion of the data used for these indicators, as well as general information about colorectal cancer and links to additional resources for those who would like to know more about this type of cancer.

For more information about this dashboard, please contact MDHHS Cancer Epidemiologist Lauren Spadafora, PhD, at
