Abstract

Cancer registry information on stage of disease at diagnosis is very important information. To date, it has not been subjected to evaluation in NAACCR’s standard set of computerized edits. The objective of the study was to evaluate the internal consistency of stage of diagnosis for breast cancer cases in four states: Arizona, Louisiana, Rhode Island, and Illinois for the period 1990-1995. A framework for identifying and correcting coding errors is described for breast cancer.
