The Louisiana Tumor Registry (LTR) is funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR), the State of Louisiana, and other federal funding agencies. Since the LTR was transferred to the Board of Supervisors of the Louisiana State University Agricultural and Mechanical College in 1995, these have been the only sources of funding.

In addition to these funding agencies, the LTR would like to thank healthcare facilities and providers who consistently submit reports on cancer diagnoses in support of the registry.

The LTR encourages the use of its data and makes every effort to assist users to use and interpret cancer registry data correctly.  Opinions or conclusions about cancer risks are those of the data user.
