The cancer registry records data, so called high-resolution, on prognostic factors and treatment for breast cancer and colon cancer. The data are of high quality but the presence of missing data affect the robstness of the statistical analyzes. The aims of the project are: to use of multiple imputation techniques to solve the problem of missing data to obtain a robust evaluation of the prognosis and treatments; to examine the role of prognostic factors through the use of relative survival models in the database completed by imputation; to verify the role of incomplete prognostic evaluation in determining prognosis.
