The 1973-2015 SEER Research Data are available in the binary format required by the SEER*Stat software and in an ASCII text format that can be analyzed with your own statistical software. The data and SEER*Stat software are available using two methods:
- Use SEER*Stat to access the data through your Internet connection (SEER*Stat's client-server mode). This is the most common method for accessing the SEER Data.
- Download compressed files from the Internet. SEER*Stat, the binary data, and the text data are available for download.
These are described in more detail in Options for Accessing the Data and SEER*Stat Software.
