Answer:

Race 1 07 Hawaiian

  • Tokelauan is to be coded 25 Polynesian, Nos
  • Hawaiian is to be coded 07 Hawaiian

 

  1. Refer to STORE and/or SEER Program Coding and Staging manual for Coding Instructions on Coding Race https://www.facs.org/~/media/files/quality%20programs/cancer/ncdb/store_manual_2018.ashx
  • Per STORE If the person is multiracial and one of the races is Hawaiian, code Hawaiian as Race 1, followed by the other race(s).
  • Per SEER Program Coding and Staging manual Code 07 takes priority over all other codes
