Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System

This site provides information about the Wisconsin population-based cancer registry, the Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System (WCRS). This site also provides direct access to information about cancer incidence and mortality in Wisconsin. The WCRS contributes to:

  • The understanding of cancer incidence and mortality in Wisconsin,
  • The development of prevention and treatment programs, and
  • The ultimate goal of reducing cancer mortality.

WCRS Meets the Highest National Data Quality

The Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System has been recognized by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) as a Registry of Distinction for 2019, which reflects the submission of high quality data for cancer prevention and control activities.

In addition, the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries has recognized WCRS for meeting its 2020 Gold Standard for 2017 incidence data. Cancer registries that meet the Gold Standard for Registry Certification have achieved the highest NAACCR standard for complete, accurate, and timely data.

Certified Tumor Registrar Education Program

WCRS is pleased to support the Cancer Information Management education program at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College, which provides specialized training for Certified Tumor Registrar certification. Please visit the Southwest Wisconsin Technical College website for details about the new Cancer Information Management program.
