Statement of Purpose and Institute Overview:
The purpose of this course is to teach students how to analyze population-based cancer registry data. This is important because SEER data are used to set national, state and sub-state benchmarks for cancer incidence, mortality, and survival rates. The data are also used to set priorities and directions in cancer research. This course will provide an overview of SEER*Stat, basic rate session, trend analyses, survival statistics, etc. This course has been popular at previous conferences and presentations. After taking this course, students will be able to assess the burden of cancer in the US population.
