  • Description:
    The most current data come from the 2015 November NPCR submission, which covers incident cancer cases diagnosed in 2001 through 2013. Each year, NPCR-funded central cancer registries submit to CDC data on cancer diagnosed during the most recent year. In addition, data from previous years are updated with information from the newly submitted records. NPCR allows an interval of 23 months after the close of the diagnosis year for submission (by November 30, 2015 for 2013 data) to ensure case completeness and high quality. CDC supports the data collection and quality standards from the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) consensus documents. During data collection, CDC also applies additional rigorous quality control edits, data completeness evaluations, and data quality assessments on all NPCR data.
