Details of each database available in SEER*Stat are provided below. We provide a database dictionary and a data description document to describe all the variables in the Research and Research Plus databases. We also provide a summary by SEER*Stat session type of the available databases and main characteristics of each database.

Documentation of SEER*Stat Variables

  • Dictionary of  SEER Variables: Excel (XLSX, 37 KB) or PDF (PDF, 269 KB)
    Lists all the variables in the SEER*Stat databases with the following information: NAACCR item number, description and definitions, category name, and availability in the Research, Research Plus, and SEER 21 Limited-Field databases (see SEER Data Change History for more information).
  • Data Description for SEER Research and Research Plus (PDF, 1.7 MB)
    Provides documentation for each of the variables in the Research and Research Plus databases.

County attribute data from the U.S. Census are also linked to the SEER*Stat databases. Variables available are dependent on the type of database:

  • Research databases have two time-dependent fields available: Median Household Income and Rural-Urban Continuum Codes.
  • Research Plus databases have many fields available from the two types of county attributes: Static and Time-Dependent.
