SEER-CAHPS Flagged Custom Database in SEER*Stat – Sample Size Estimator
There is a flag available in SEER*Stat that identifies SEER patients that responded to Medicare CAHPS surveys, as well as the number of surveys before and after diagnosis for fee-for-service and Medicare Advantage enrollees. This will allow you to determine a rough estimate of the number of individuals who have been diagnosed with the cancer site you are interested in studying and have completed a CAHPS survey before and after being diagnosed.
To gain access to the SEER*Stat customized database with access to these CAHPS indicators, you need to follow these two steps:
- Send an e-mail to SEER custom data to gain access to the CAHPS customized SEER database. In the e-mail, include your name and either:
- Your SEER*Stat username or
- A filled out SEER*Stat data use agreement (PDF) .
- Then, refer to the following instructions for obtaining estimated frequencies on the number of individuals and CAHPS surveys that will be available in SEER- CAHPS for your analysis.
As this is a free tool and we are tracking its use, please do not share access to the customized database. Advise anyone who is interested in obtaining access to this tool to follow the above steps.
For any additional questions, please contact the SEER-CAHPS staff
