The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) currently collects and publishes cancer incidence, prevalence, and survival data from population-based cancer registries covering approximately 28 percent of the U.S. population. The SEER registries routinely collect data on patient demographics, primary tumor site, tumor morphology, stage at diagnosis, and first course of treatment, and they follow up with patients for vital status. The SEER Program is the only comprehensive source of population-based information in the United States that includes stage of cancer at the time of diagnosis and patient survival data. It provides the greatest longevity for population-based cancer statistics in the United States, having begun with nine registries in 1973.
