Reporting Data

INFORMATION FOR REPORTING FACILITIES AND SOFTWARE VENDORS

Effective immediately, the Georgia Center for Cancer Statistics (GCCS) will accept diagnosis year 2017 data submitted in the NAACCR Version 16.0 format. We have given cancer registry software vendors state-specific NAACCR 16E EDITS metafiles, and the edit set is named “GA_V16E Hospital Edit Set”. You will need to run these edits before submitting Version 16.0 data to GCCS.

Data Submissions

Until further notice, we will accept diagnosis year 2015 and earlier cases in either the NAACCR Version 15.0 or Version 16.0 format. All cases diagnosed 01/01/2016 and later must be submitted in NAACCR Version 16.0.

Data Edits

We will run the GA_V15 Hospital Edit Set on data submitted to us in the Version 15.0 format. We will run the GA_V16E Hospital Edit Set on data submitted to us in the Version 16.0 format. We recommend that you send an encrypted edit report with your submission. If you do not include an edit report or a statement that you have run Georgia Hospital Edits and attempted to clear all edit errors, any errors generated will be counted.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
