Statistics Calculated by SEER*Stat

SEER*Stat was developed by the NCI for the analysis and reporting of cancer statistics, in particular, statistics regarding cancer incidence, mortality, survival, and prevalence. The SEER*Stat program uses sessions as a means to logically organize these statistics. Survival, Limited-Duration Prevalence and MP-SIR (Multiple Primary -- Standardized Incidence Ratios) sessions can only be used to calculate statistics related to those topics. Frequency and Rate sessions, however, are named for the calculations and not their application. Frequency and Rate sessions are typically used to calculate statistics related to incidence and mortality, but the calculations performed in these sessions are generic in nature and could be applied to other types of data.  

Case Listing is the only type of SEER*Stat session that is not used to calculate statistics. Instead, Case Listing sessions are used to create tables showing the actual values stored in the database. They provide a mechanism for displaying individual cancer records.  

The following provides an overview of the statistics calculated in each of the SEER*Stat sessions. Follow the heading links for a complete listing of all available statistics.
