CCRA Interactive Reporting Tools

The interactive reporting tools have now been deployed to the CCRA website as a submenu under Initiatives – Canadian Cancer Research Survey. Please note that the link that I forwarded previously is now retired.

The reports are available in both official languages.

English: http://www.ccra-acrc.ca/index.php/initiatives/canadian-cancer-research-survey/ccrs-interactive-tools

French: http://www.ccra-acrc.ca/index.php/fr/projets/enquete-canadienne-sur-la-recherche-sur-le-cancer/outils-interactifs-de-l-ecrc

Note that there are a few remaining issues with the French. First, the Tableau Public interface (where the dashboards are embedded) is in English. Second, the All selection in the filter lists does not appear as ‘Tous’. And finally, the numbers are not appropriately formatted. I’m hoping that I will eventually be able to resolve these issues, but for now, the data itself is available in French.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and thank you for your patience with this project.
