Colon Cancer Risk Assessment - Gauss Program

The Colon Cancer Risk Assessment-Gauss Program is an executable file that projects absolute colon cancer risk according to NCI’s Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment Tool (CCRAT) algorithm in the batch mode. It also computes 95% confidence intervals for the risk projections.

Users can enter risk factor data and projection interval ages for a group of men or women, and the program will return the corresponding absolute risk projections. This program may be useful for research purposes when one needs risk projections for an entire study population. The program can be run on either a 32-bit or a 64-bit system. To find a program in SAS to compute absolute risk projections (without confidence intervals), please see the Colon Cancer Risk Assessment - SAS Macro page.
