Reports on cancer incidence for the State of Washington by region, sex and primary
site are published annually.
Information on patient age, sex, county of residence, zip code, cancer type and
treatment are generally accessible to the public in aggregate form as non-confidential
data. All other data items are considered confidential, and are available to state
and county Departments of Health, as well as their contracting agencies and academic
researchers, under certain conditions. Data requests by qualified academic researchers
are also welcomed after their requests have been formally reviewed and approved
according to established state procedures. Patient, physician and facility identifiers
are always considered confidential and are accessible by qualified agencies only
after the approval process is successfully completed.
