New Data: Canadian Cancer Registry 2013

Posted by ARDC on August 18, 2016 in News

The 2013 Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR) is now available for use by researchers at the Atlantic Research Data Centre. The CCR is an administrative database with the primary objective of providing a national database of information that can be used to produce standardized and comparable statistics for cancer incidence and survival data for each primary type of cancer. This information is used to assist and support health planners and decision-makers at all levels of government to: identify risk factors for cancer; plan, monitor and evaluate a broad range of cancer control programs (e.g., screening); and, conduct research in health services and economics.
