The Canadian Cancer Registry (diagnosis years 1992 to 2014) linked to the Canadian Vital Statistics Death data (1992 to 2014), and death information from the T1 Personal Master File (1992 to 2014), is now accessible at Statistics Canada’s Research Data Centres (RDC) across the country. The linked file will enable broader analytical use of the Canadian Cancer Registry, by facilitating epidemiological research on cause of death and permitting the estimation of cancer survival and prevalence rates. As part of its record linkage activities, Statistics Canada linked the patient records in the Canadian Cancer Registry to death information available in the Canadian Vital Statistics Death Database and from income tax returns (T1 Personal Master File). The death-linked analytic file contains all CCR variables and a selection of CVSD variables. Researchers will be able to merge the linked file to the full CVSD and the multiple cause of death file available in the RDC if additional variables are required.
