If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Vivien Gruar.

We are seeking a new perspective in the assessment of data completeness in the Cancer Analysis System (CAS), which holds the data from the National Cancer Registry, and how this impacts on the production and development of cancer survival statistics, on which we (PHE) collaborate with the Office for National Statistics (ONS). These statistics are released on an annual basis for the Department of Health (DH) and other external stakeholders.

In this internship, there will be elements of learning/training which will be provided by the supervisors.

The project will involve a combination of the following, depending on the intern’s interests, or an alternative project if proposed by the intern and mutually agreed:

  • Structured querying of national cancer database.
  • Analyse and produce a report on the patterns of missing data.
  • Develop algorithm(s) using multiple imputation methodology to deal with issues of missing data.
  • Produce Cancer Survival Statistics using the methodology developed for the Official Statistics publications in conjunction with the implementation of the newly developed algorithm(s) to deal with missing data.
  • To conduct a sensitivity analysis of the impact of the Cancer Survival Statistics from missing data.
  • Produce a peer-reviewed publication or internal report on the impact of missing data on Cancer Survival Statistics.
