Cancer Surveillance System Rationale and Approach

The National Program of Cancer Registries–Cancer Surveillance System (NPCR–CSS) Rationale and Approach (July 1999) is a resource document that—

  • Presents the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) plan for receiving, assessing, enhancing, aggregating, and disseminating cancer data from states funded by NPCR.
  • Provides justification for meeting CDC's responsibilities for public health surveillance through state-level cancer incidence data.
  • Helps monitor progress toward NPCR program objectives.
  • Assists in the coordination of cancer surveillance activities across various public health agencies and organizations.
