  • Producing Cancer Statistics at the Census Tract Level: A Louisiana Story

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/14/2018

    During the 2017 Louisiana Legislative Session, a new law was signed requiring that the Louisiana Tumor Registry (LTR) produce and release cancer incidence counts and rates at the census tract level. Previously, cancer statistics could be released to the public at the parish (county) level. To comply with this law, the LTR convened a team, including experts from NCI-SEER and IMS, to develop the appropriate methodology to produce incidence rates at the census tract level while ensuring rate stability and patient confidentiality. The objective of this presentation is to describe the LTR's experience with identifying the appropriate population source, selecting the time period for the analysis, and producing reliable cancer statistics at the census tract level, as well as to share a summary of the results.
