Thanks to the work of the Data Assessment Workgroup, chaired by Mei-Chin Hsieh of the Louisiana Tumor Registry, we have a new Data Assessment Profile focused on the completeness of diagnostic confirmation for malignant & non-malignant brain tumors in US registries.
The new assessment, along with historical data quality evaluations, is available on the NAACCR Website under the Research & Analytic Tools tab/ACCESS DATA FOR RESEARCH/Data Quality Assessments and Evaluations.

If you have specific data items you would like to see assessed or updated by the Data Assessment Workgroup, please contact Mei-Chin MHsieh@lsuhsc.edu. Please note, when appropriate, the workgroup will begin to include assessments of Canadian registry data this year.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you and have a wonderful day,
