Limited-Use Data

The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) provides an individual record level cancer incidence dataset without personal identifiers for analysis and research known as TCR Limited-Use Data. This dataset is available by request in SAS or SEER*Stat file formats. 

Before submitting a request for a limited-use incidence dataset, please review the following:

To request limited-use data, complete the TCR Limited-Use Data Request Form and email it to CancerData@dshs.texas.gov.

Texas cancer mortality data are available from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program; see their U.S. Mortality Data webpage for details. From there, you may access mortality data at the state and county levels. Accessing these data requires a signed SEER Research Data Agreement form; refer to Accessing the SEER Data for more information.

SEER*Stat Software available to analyze TCR Limited-Use Data

The SEER Program provides free software called SEER*Stat that can be used for the analysis and reporting of cancer statistics. Additional information, including how to request the SEER*Stat software, is available on the SEER website.
 


TCR requests that any person or organization reporting results or analyses using cancer data provided by the TCR include the Requested Citation/Acknowledgement of TCR Data Use in their report, presentation, or publication.
