Relative Cancer Survival

Relative Cancer Survival

The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) uses a measure called Relative Survival, which is commonly reported by the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program. Relative survival presents cancer survival adjusted for other causes of death by comparing the survival among patients with cancer to the expected survival rates in a comparable population (by year, age, sex, race/ethnicity, and county-level socioeconomic status) without cancer.
