***NCDB 2014 Participant Use File, Diagnosis Years 2004-2014***
***For Summer 2016 RFA***
***STATA Import, Value, and Variable Labels***
***Created in STATA 13.1***;

* This program will import the flat PUF text file and assign value and variable labels
*To read in the .dat file and assign variable names and labels in STATA,
*update the syntax in the four places listed in the instructions with the
*location of where the .dat file is saved and the name of the file.
*The lines to update are, "using Z:\MyData\flatfilename.dat",
*"save Z:\MyData\varlabels.dta, replace", "use Z:\MyData\varlabels.dta",
*and "save Z:\MyData\valuelabels.dta, replace".

*Due to value label lengths exceeding allowed lenths in STATA, items with value labels that may be cut off
*have the code number at the beginning of each value label.
*See data dictionary for full value labels and codes.

/* Scope of Regional Lymph Node Surgery:
Sentinel Lymph Nodes: Data on Scope of Regional Lymph Node Surgery have been found to under-report
Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy. Revised coding rules and associated instructions were implemented for
cases diagnosed January 1, 2012 and later, however CoC use of the item “Scope of Regional Lymph Node Surgery”
is curtailed in all data years contained in this PUF. The item is used only to identify whether or not a
patient underwent regional lymph node surgery, effectively removing any distinction between the type or extent
of surgical intervention. For all sites, codes for this item are limited to 0, 1 and 9.
Starting with the January 2016 RFP, an expanded version of the Scope of Regional Lymph Node Surgery Variable,
called 'Scope of Regional Lymph Node Surgery 2012' is available starting with cases diagnosed in 2012
through the most recent year available in the PUF. For more information and labels for the
RX_SUMM_SCOPE_REG_LN_2012 item, please refer to the entry in the FORDS manual (NAACCR Item #1292):
