This NAACCR TF will address issues with the collection and use of cancer surveillance data on, and for, AIAN people. AIAN people have a unique cancer burden, which has been described in several published manuscripts. However, there are also documented difficulties with these analyses (e.g., misclassification of AIAN race in both the numerator and the denominator). With recent changes at NCHS with regards to race data for mortality and the national move towards non-bridged race denominators, we anticipate that these issues will only be magnified. This TF will convene with Tribal partners to discuss and describe some of these issues and provide recommendations to the cancer surveillance community to improve our assessments of the burden of cancer in this population.
