To evaluate the quality of data from the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention abstracted data from the randomly selected medical records of 6 NBCCEDP-funded state programs. The data-quality assessments determined that, with few exceptions, the NBCCEDP data reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were valid and consistent with the sociodemographic and clinical data of the program medical records.
