National Program of Cancer Registries Annual Program Evaluation Instrument (NPCR-APEI)—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and brief description of the proposed project:
CDC is responsible for administering and monitoring the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR). As of 1999, CDC supported 45 states, 3 territories, and the District of Columbia for population-based cancer registries. (The 5 remaining states receive federal funding for the operations of cancer registries through the National Cancer Institute.)
The NPCR Annual Program Evaluation Instrument (NPCR-APEI) is needed in order to receive, process, evaluate, aggregate and disseminate NPCR program information. Data collected using this instrument will be used by the NPCR to evaluate various attributes of the registries funded by NPCR, monitor NPCR registries' progress towards program standards, goals, and objectives, and respond to data inquiries made by CDC and other agencies of the federal government. Some data for this instrument is pre-loaded, thus minimizing the burden on respondents. There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
Annualized Burden Table:
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden per responses (in hours)||Total burden in hours|
