Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.This survey was carried out using the Cancer Research UK Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM), a validated instrument developed by University College London, King's College London and University of Oxford. It is used to assess the level of awareness and anticipated help-seeking behaviour amongst the public in relation to cancer. The survey was conducted across the Mount Vernon Cancer Network area. This comprises Luton, South Bedfordshire, West Hertfordshire and East and North Hertfordshire Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). The survey took place prior to the merger of the two Hertfordshire PCTs.
A total of 2,018 interviews were conducted face-to-face with residents using CAPI (Computer Aided Personal Interviewing) technology (users should note that the data file includes only 1,251 cases). Interviews took place between February and May 2010. During interviewing, quotas were set for PCT, age, gender and ethnicity to ensure the sample represented as closely as possible the population of the Mount Vernon Cancer Network area. Upon completion of the interview, respondents were provided with an information sheet which gave them the answers to the questions contained within the interview, as well as providing details of support services should they require further information or wish to discuss anything that the survey had highlighted. For further details, please see documentation.
