Course Overview

NCI experts will demonstrate how to use the SEER*Stat statistical software to analyze cancer surveillance data. Data produced by SEER*Stat are used to: (1) conduct cancer prevention and control studies; (2) conduct research in health disparities; (3) prioritize cancer control efforts; and (4) monitor progress, for the purpose of reducing the burden of cancer on the US population.

The course will:

  • introduce basic and advanced statistical topics in the analysis of cancer registry data;
  • provide an overview of the Health Disparities Calculator (HD*Calc) and eleven health disparities measures;
  • cover case listings, frequencies, rates, and county attributes handled within the software;
  • allow participants to examine trends in rates using the SEER*Stat and Joinpoint software; and
  • allow participants to calculate trend analysis, prevalence, survival, and multiple-primary standardized incidence ratio statistics.
