New High-Tech Interactive Arizona Cancer Registry Website

December 1st, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

Our Arizona Cancer Center has developed a highly interactive new website using state-of-the-art GIS technology.  This nifty new website lets the public and researchers access cancer data by communities (Community Health Analysis Areas).  It allows easy access to age adjusted incidence rates and counts for 13 cancers that have public health implications.  The website visualizes cancer data with interactive maps, tables and graphs including a rate distribution graph, a time series chart and a rate classification chart.

All the elements are linked, so a selected community in one chart or map will be selected in all others.  Confidence intervals and the Arizona State rate were added to increase understanding of complex statistics and minimize misinterpretation of the data.  All 13 Cancer data tables can be downloaded in an Excel format.   Use this link to explore the website and its many features.  If you have any questions or need any additional information contact our local (but federally-funded) guru Wesley Kortuem at wes.kortuem@azdhs.gov.
