NJSCR Certification and Funding

Quality control is an integral part of the NJSCR. We review and evaluate the quality of our data through edit programs and re-abstracting studies. We also strive to improve data collection activities through targeted training programs. The NJSCR has been recently awarded the highest possible ratings for each of the three national surveillance programs, including  North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Gold Standard from 1995 through 2014 (excluding 2011), the CDC National Program of Cancer Registries Registry of Excellence Award, and the NCI SEER Program 1st Place award, meeting 14 of 14 data quality indicators.  These awards are based on completeness of cancer case ascertainment, completeness of specific information on the cancer cases, percent of death certificate only cases, percent of duplicate cases, in addition to passing the data through a stringent edit program.


The NJSCR is a participant in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and is a National Cancer Institute SEER Expansion Registry. We acknowledge the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for its support of the NJSCR under cooperative agreement 5U58DP003931-02 awarded to the New Jersey Department of Health. The collection of State of New Jersey cancer incidence data is also supported by the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program under contract HHSN 261201300021I NCI Control No. N01PC-2013-00021. The NJSCR is also a member of the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR).
