Abstract

This assessment uses data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program to examine selected site-specific impacts for the most common cancer types of all cases diagnosed in 1998-2001 where differences in indirect assignment to either a summary stage 1977 or a summary stage 2000 code would occur using the more detailed extent of disease coding system (EOD) as a basis for staging. Cases were indirectly coded to summary stage twice using EOD: once based on the 1977 rules and the second based on the 2000 rules.
