Abstract

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.

A Special Licence access version of this study is available from the UK Data Archive under SN 6642. This study includes all the variables in the End User Licence (EUL) version but with the addition of postcode and detailed Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) score variables.
Main Topics:
The CAM questionnaire addressed the following topics:
  • public awareness of cancer symptoms
  • public knowledge of cancer risk factors
  • reasons for patient delay before contacting doctor
  • public knowledge of common cancer types in men and women
  • public awareness of cancer screening programmes
  • demographic variables
