    Update: Please join us for our NAACCR Talk: "Generating Cancer Rates by NAACCR Poverty Code...and then some!" on April 25, 2022, from 2-3:30pm ET.

     

    In addition to the information sent out below, I want to clarify that the "and then some!" portion of this talk will demonstrate how to:

    calculate rates by census tract, Cancer Reporting Zones, CDC Sub-County Geographic Area, and multiple area-based social measures with your registry data in SEER*Stat. We encourage staff who work on cancer cluster concerns and other small area rate calculations attend. We particularly encourage staff who run SEER*Prep to attend, as we will detail how to include the census tract population estimates along with your registry data in SEER*Prep.

     

    Registration is free at:

    This "How To" webinar will introduce participants to newly developed resources to support spatial analysis and health equity research. These resources, which include census tract-level population estimates for the United States, are freely available and developed specifically for using in cancer surveillance. This webinar addresses how to calculate cancer rates in SEER*Stat by tract-level based social measure, such as NAACCR Poverty Code.

     

    How to handle the incidence data, census tract-level population estimates, and the area-based social measures data will be covered step by step.

     

    This webinar is appropriate for registry analysts, academic researchers, and anyone interested in the use of cancer registry data.
