Proposed Project

Economic Analysis of the National Program of Cancer Registries—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) is a comprehensive, federally sponsored public health program involving cancer registries in 45 States and the District of Columbia. The NPCR was established to collect data on the occurrence of cancer; the type, extent, and location of the cancer; and the type of initial treatment. Start Printed Page 33433

CDC proposes to conduct a systematic analysis of the economic costs incurred by the NPCR. Additional information will be collected on registry activities, activity-based costs, other sources of funding and in-kind contributions. Information will be submitted to CDC once per year for three years using a Web-based system. There is no overlap with information currently collected from NPCR awardees through the Annual Program Evaluation Instrument (OMB No. 0920-0706, exp. 12/31/2008).

The proposed information collection will allow CDC to assess the true cost of registry operations in relation to the benefits of those operations, identify factors that impact cost, perform cost-effectiveness analysis, and improve the efficiency of resource allocation within the NPCR.

There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,012.
