Registries

Central cancer registries play a foundational role in cancer surveillance and research. NAACCR members are composed of registries that help standards and guidelines ensure data uniformity and quality. These registries collect, analyze, and disseminate vital cancer data, enabling researchers, policymakers, and healthcare providers to gain insights into cancer incidence, mortality, and trends.
