Special Project We Are Working On
NAACCR Fast Stats is an interactive tool for quick access to key NAACCR and US cancer statistics for major cancer sites by age, sex, race/ethnicity, registry and population standard. This application was developed by NAACCR and our partners. Statistics are presented as graphs and tables stratified by Cancer Site, Race / Ethnicity / Sex / Standard Population / Race / Sex, Age at Diagnosis / Registry.

Data Standards and Data Dictionary, Volume II Document Management System
NAACCR has developed a document management system for the NAACCR Standards for Cancer Registries, Volume II, Data Standards and Data Dictionary. Version 13 (To Be Implemented January 1, 2013) is the first edition using this custom document management system. The new system uses an intuitive, web-based interface to maintain and administer Standards Volume II. Data are stored in an advanced relational database system (RDBS) to allow for easier searching and indexing. Previous versions can be found in the archive (see below).
The document management system provides an easier process for maintenance of Volume II; includes a search feature for data items; includes a query builder to allow users to build their own reports; and, includes other user-friendly features such as links to cross-reference items between chapters. In addition, users can now submit changes to data items by searching the database for an existing item and pre-loading that item’s information into the item change form.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Shortest Path Finder Project
We have partnered with experts in geographic information system (GIS) technology from the Texas A & M University, Dr. Daniel W. Goldberg, and members of the NAACCR GIS Committee to develop a software package, the “Road Network Distance Application,” that processes batches of patient records supplied by population based cancer registries in the United States and Canada. This application outputs multiple measures of driving time and distance travel by car between the patient’s residence and the health care facilities visited for cancer diagnosis and treatment. In short, this project will investigate whether a patient’s travel time and distance to obtain his or her cancer screening and treatment has an effect on outcomes such as stage at diagnosis.
We would like to thank Komen for their support and award of the development grant. NAACCR would also like to thank our partners, NAVTEQ and GIS Solutions, Inc.(Springfield, Illinois) for their kind donation of the data. This project would not be possible without their expertise and data file. Please visit their Web sites for additional information regarding their products and expertise. Additionally, we thank the members of the NAACCR GIS Committee who continue to lend their expertise to make this project a success.
