Data Collection

The New Mexico Tumor Registry maintains a cancer information reporting system for the entire resident population of New Mexico and the American Indian population residing in Arizona (the latter in collaboration with the Arizona Cancer Registry).

NMTR circuit-riding abstractors visit New Mexico facilities, as well as Arizona Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities, on a schedule that reflects the caseload of each facility. All standard sources for case identification are reviewed to ensure complete coverage. In most facilities, pathology reports, patients logs, disease indices and outpatient records are reviewed.
