Colon Cancer Risk Assessment - SAS Macro
The Colon Cancer Risk Assessment Macro (in SAS software) projects absolute colon cancer risk according to NCI’s Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment Tool (CCRAT) algorithm in the batch mode.
Users can enter risk factor data and projection interval ages for a group of men or women, and the macro 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. Mistake in error listing for men’s model was corrected. To find a GAUSS version of this program that also computes 95% confidence intervals, please see the Colon Cancer Risk Assessment - Gauss Program page.
