Lung cancer is in remission


For persons ages 18 and older who have ever been diagnosed with lung cancer (CNLUNG), CNLUNGRMS indicates whether the cancer is in remission. CNLUNGAG indicates the age at which the individual was first diagnosed with the cancer.

CNLUNGRMS is part of a series of cancer variables included in MEPS beginning in 2008. From 2013 forward, AHRQ removed the variables indicating age of diagnosis and remission status for each reported cancer from the public file for confidentiality reasons. For related variables and more information about the cancer variables included in MEPS, please see CNBLAD.
