CiNA Public Use Dataset
The NAACCR CiNA-Public Dataset is
a new CiNA product that was first available for 1995-2013 data. The CiNA Public
Use Dataset is a non-confidential data set with a limited number of variables,
available in the SEER*Stat program. The CiNA Public Use Dataset is a publically
accessible dataset requiring only a signed Data Use Agreement for access,
similar to accessing SEER data. The other CiNA projects require a proposal
review, NAACCR IRB, and consent by each registry. All CiNA data are updated
annually after publication of the CiNA monographs; approximately July.
The CiNA-Public Use Dataset is comprised of two datasets. One
allows a user to generate counts, rates and tends within the SEER*Stat system.
This dataset includes age in the 19 age group categories. The second dataset
allows the user to export the data as a case-listing to allow regression and
other analysis in standard, statistical programs. This second dataset includes
both age and site as categorical variables for US combined and Canada combined.
A researcher will be able to access both data sets in the same SEER*Stat
session but will only be able to export case-listed data from registries that
have provided consent.
Additional details are available here. To obtain access, please sign the Data Use Agreement on page 2 and return to the Program Manager of Data Use &
Research, Recinda Sherman at email@example.com.
variable list is located starting of page 6 of (Description of CiNA Public Use Dataset). Variables are recoded for ease of use and standardization of analysis.
SEER*Stat provides automatic cell suppression of <6 and scrambles the
Patient IDs. There are no treatment variables available in the CiNA Public Use
