Detailed Statistics from the 'Get Data Out' programme

The Get Data Out programme from the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) publishes in-depth, anonymous data about cancer to support research.

Get Data Out produces key statistics about groups of cancer patients. Patients diagnosed with a certain type of tumour are split into many smaller groups, each of which contains approximately 100 patients with the same characteristics. For each group of patients, we routinely publish statistics about incidence, routes to diagnosis, treatments and survival.

The Get Data Out programme is unique amongst publications from NCRAS because it produces statistics about small groups of patients. We hope that by releasing detailed data like this we can help researchers, the public and patients themselves discover more about cancer.
