Reports and Factsheets
The California Cancer Registry (CCR) has released a new report this Fall entitled “Cancer Stage at Diagnosis.” This
report presents information collected by the CCR stage at diagnosis and five-year survival for some of the most
commonly diagnosed cancers among Californians age 20 and older. Information obtained through the California
Behavioral Risk Factors Survey (BRFS) about screening for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancers is also
presented to show the State’s progress towards reaching the Healthy People 2010 goals. By monitoring cancer
occurrence over time, the CCR helps assess California’s progress in cancer prevention and early detection. A link
to this report is now available on our website at:
