These resources, which include census tract-level population estimates for the United States, are freely available and developed specifically for use in cancer surveillance. This webinar addresses how to calculate cancer rates in SEER*Stat by tract-level based social measure, such as NAACCR Poverty Code.
How to handle the NAACCR Version 22 incidence data, census tract-level population estimates, and the area-based social measures data will be covered step by step.
