The Michigan Cancer Foundation Registry (MCFR), a unit in the Department of Social Oncology of the Michigan Cancer Foundation, began in 1949 as a pathology registry for 25 collaborating hospitals. In 1960, it became a central statistical resource for these hospitals. The population of Metropolitan Detroit provides the basis for primary research emphases of the MCFR: racial and ethnic variations and occupational factors associated with the occurrence of certain cancers. Cancer sites for which Detroit appears to differ considerably from the total SEER experience include: lung and bronchus, colon, female breast, and the prostate gland.
