18                Public health data are collected, tested, analyzed, and released following
19                a complex process designed to ensure their <b>accuracy, clarity, and internal
20                consistency</b>.  With only a few exceptions, public health data change very
21                little from year to year.  Therefore, the Center for Health Statistics
22                recommends that data users make projections based on several years of older,
23                quality-assured data to get estimates of current data, rather than use
24                newer preliminary datasets that might have missing or duplicate records
25                and still contain errors, especially if those errors systematically affect
26                large portions of the data.

37                                                Birth, death, infant death, and fetal death data are released to the public in NJSHAD indicator reports and the query system only after passing all quality checks, which are required by the New Jersey Department of Health and the <a href="" target="_blank">National Center for Health Statistics</a> (NCHS), and can take multiple years to complete.<br/><br/> 
38                                                Records of births, deaths, and fetal deaths of New Jersey
39                                                residents which occurred in other states are also included in final datasets.
40                                                Out-of-state records are obtained through participation in the national
41                                                <a href="" target="_blank">Vital Statistics Cooperative Program</a> (VSCP), which facilitates the exchange of information on vital events between the states of occurrence and residence. <br/><br/>
42                                                After all quality checks have been passed and all out-of-state data have been received, the dataset is considered to be <text class="Bold">final</text>
43                                                For these reasons, the vital events data we present here are often behind
44                                                by a few years.<br/>

63                                                NJSCR staff work diligently to ensure the data meet quality standards,
64                                                which include timeliness, completeness of cancer case ascertainment,
65                                                completeness of specific information on the cancer cases, and passing the data through a stringent edit program.<br/><br/> 
66                                                The annual release of the NJSCR data is usually a few years behind but is consistent with the release of cancer data among other state cancer registries as well as the nation.
