The Oregon State Cancer Registry (OSCaR) was established in August 1995, after the Oregon Legislature unanimously passed legislation making cancer a reportable disease.
OSCaR is a statewide, population-based registry that collects and analyzes information about cancer cases occurring in Oregon. The ability to identify who is diagnosed statewide is important in the development of ways to prevent and control cancer.
Quality Cancer Data for a Healthier Oregon
The mission of the Oregon State Cancer Registry is to collect complete, quality cancer data that supports cancer research and public health practices designed to improve efforts in the screening, treatment and survivorship of all people in Oregon affected by cancer.
OSCaR is part of the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion. Search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
