The Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) collects nationally representative data routinely about the American public's use of cancer-related information. The survey

Cancer Center Community Outreach and Engagement (COE) programs are leveraging data to surmount obstacles in health information utilization across diverse populations. This enables them to formulate more impactful communication strategies tailored to specific needs.


We have used data from HINTS for the years 2019, 2020, and 2022 to generate catchment area-level statistics. These statistics are designed to augment COE initiatives at cancer centers, providing valuable insights for targeted communication.


To assess the scope and quality of the measures, please download the Sample Standard Data.


For a standard dataset specific to your cancer center, a moderate fee of $700 applies. Additional costs will be incurred for customized data requirements. Customization options might encompass exploration of additional subregions, comparative assessments with other cancer centers' catchment areas, detailed analysis of respondent subgroups, and inclusion of data from extended years. To proceed, submit your request here.


We have also developed an extensive list of community-level measures related to cancer screening, treatment, survivorship, and end-of-life care, derived from Medicare and Medicaid claims data. For additional information, please schedule a meeting and discuss case studies.
