Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.This survey was carried out in the London Borough of Lambeth using the nationally validated Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM). BMG Research conducted the survey on behalf of Lambeth Primary Care Trust (PCT) and the South East London Cancer Network (SELCN). A total of 2,298 interviews were conducted face-to-face with residents using CAPI (Computer Aided Personal Interviewing) technology. During interviewing, quotas were set for ward, age, and ethnicity and deprivation quintile to ensure the sample represented as closely as possible the population of Lambeth. The sample included a boost sample of 261 Black African residents, as the SELCN were particularly interested in the levels of awareness and perception of cancer amongst this ethnic community.
