Abstract

This paper presents the results of a survey of NAACCR member registries to evaluate the data collection, coding, and use of industry and occupation information. A response rate of 77% was achieved. The survey delineated a number of inadequacies in the availability, coding, and ultimately use of these data. Improvements to data quality are suggested based on suggestions by survey respondents.
