    Use of the traditional mechanism for cancer surveillance, hospital-based registries, may limit ascertainment of incident cases. In this study, the authors evaluated the ability of a statewide hospital discharge file (HDF) to enhance central cancer registry reporting. Incident cancers from a...

    To support cancer control efforts, the National Program of Cancer Registries was established to enhance or develop cancer registries in every state. But there is an alternative. State cancer control programs could be adequately planned and evaluated without a cancer registry, and federal support...

We used a statewide hospital discharge file to estimate the capture rate and determine biases in capture by a state cancer registry. Methods: We merged the Virginia...
