NCRA’s Salary Considerations for Cancer Registrars: 2017 provides registrars and human resource departments with accurate and timely salary information to assist with hiring of this critical health information profession.
The salary data was collected in 2017 as part of the most recent Job Analysis (JA) Survey of cancer registry professionals. Conducted by NCRA’s Council on Certification, the JA Survey is used to inform the process of updating the test-content outline for the Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR) credential exam. In addition to questions about the essential performance domains and job tasks of cancer registry professionals, the 2017 JA Survey contained demographic questions, including education, income, and employer information. NCRA used the data to conduct further analyses of demographic and job characteristics related to income within the cancer registry workforce. The report outlines the 2017 survey data and compares it to the data collected from the 2012 JA Survey.
