Project Description

New Brunswick (NB) Canada uses its breast cancer screening service program to assess the extent to which eligible NB women are complying with mammography guidelines. While many studies have investigated factors associated with participation in periodic breast cancer screening in Canada and elsewhere, most work has relied on self-reported surveys or smaller scale primary data collection. This project examines the relationships between screening participation and stage at diagnosis of breast cancer using administrative data on New Brunswick women aged 50-75.
