Hello NAACCR members,
On behalf of NAACCR, the CiNA Editorial Workgroup, and the NAACCR Certification Workgroup, I am pleased to announce the release of the CiNA 2013-2017 Monograph as well as the individual registry certification and data assessment reports.
Cancer in North America (CiNA) 2013-2017 Monograph
This year's CiNA report marks the 30th year of publication and represents the most complete assessment of cancer burden in North America. This publication is made possible due to the efforts of NAACCR member registries to collect high quality and timely cancer surveillance data.
The CiNA Monograph encompasses five separate volumes:
Volume One: Combined Incidence for the United States, Canada, and North America
Includes aggregated cancer incidence data by site, sex, race, ethnicity, and stage, including pediatric cancer and cancer by stage at diagnosis from the high quality registries in the U. S. and Canada.
Volume Two: Registry-Specific Cancer Incidence in the United States and Canada
Includes registry-specific cancer incidence rates by cancer site, sex, race, ethnicity and stage for all NAACCR member registries submitting data for inclusion in the monograph. To help interpret the statistics, data tables for each registry include demographic and data quality information and registry descriptions are presented.
Volume Three: Registry-Specific Cancer Mortality in the United States and Canada
Includes registry-specific cancer death rates by cancer site, sex, race, and ethnicity.
Volume Four: Cancer Survival in the United States and Canada
Includes cancer survival data for the U.S. and Canada from 61 registries on more than 13 million cases diagnosed among North Americans between 2010 and 2016.
Volume Five: Cancer Prevalence in the United States and Canada
Includes cancer prevalence estimates for the U.S. and Canada from 61 registries on more than 13 million cases diagnosed among North Americans between 2007 and 2016.
The current CiNA 2013-2017 Monograph (and accompanying technical resources) is available here: https://www.naaccr.org/cancer-in-north-america-cina-volumes/.
Certification, Data Assessment Reports, and new Data Assessment Visualization Tool
Certification results and the annual data assessment results for the December 2019 NAACCR Call for Data are now available in the Call for Data section of the NAACCR Website: https://www.naaccr.org/call-for-data/.
Registries can access their registry-specific data from the Submit Tab. Click the blue button SUBMIT CALL FOR DATA, COMPLETE CARRI DATABASE, ACCESS DATA ASSESSMENT and enter your MyNAACCR credentials. There you will find the updated three annual reports (Certification, DQI, and CiNA Summary) as pdfs.
***New this year, we are excited to present data from these reports in a Data Visualization Tool.
You will need to download a free software, Tableau Reader, to view the data (https://www.tableau.com/products/reader). More information is on the Call for Data website as well as a video tutorial that will orient you to the new tool. I hope you find the new tool useful, and we welcome feedback.
If you have any questions or concerns about any of these products, or need assistance with access, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Be safe and have a wonderful day,
-on behalf of NAACCR, Certification Workgroup, and CiNA Editorial Workgroup,
