Information for the NAACCR Call for Data
Each year, NAACCR has a Call for Data for its certification process and to produce a new set of Cancer in North America (CiNA) data products.
The NAACCR Data Use and Research and the Data Evaluation and Certification Committees invite you to submit incident cancer cases from your registry for the years 1995 through 2014 to be used for cancer statistics, surveillance, and research projects and activities. All data must be submitted using the NAACCR Record Layout Version 16.
In addition NAACCR is requesting that registries also include 2015 cases in their submission file. The 2015 cases will be used for evaluation purposes only and will not impact inclusion in CiNA or Certification.
All variables must conform to NAACCR standard definitions and codes, as described in Volume II, Version 16 of the NAACCR Standards for Cancer Registries: Data Standards and Data Dictionary.
If you have questions contact Jim Hofferkamp firstname.lastname@example.org.
