Proposed Project

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

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 central cancer registries (CCR), the foundation of cancer prevention and control, provide information from the reporting jurisdictions and insure that quality and timely cancer surveillance data are available to CDC.

The NPCR Annual Program Evaluation Instrument (NPCR-APEI) is needed in order to receive, process, evaluate, aggregate and disseminate NPCR program information collected by NPCR registries and reported to CDC. Data collected with 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 and objectives, and compare an individual NPCR registry's progress towards standards with national program standards as well as those of SEER and NAACCR. There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 74.
