The Cancer Registry of Republic of Slovenia is a population-based registry that has been active since 1950, and notification has been compulsory since that time. This report provides incidence and mortality tables as well as crude, cumulative, and age standardized rates based on 2003 data from the Cancer Registry of Republic of Slovenia, Institute of Oncology in Ljubljana. Also included is the estimated rate of cancer incidence in Slovenia for 2006. Information on prevalence and new cases is provided for periods of years from 1950-2003. The tables are broken down by sex and 5-year age groups and cancers are coded in ICD-10. Table 4b is coded in ICD-8 to allow comparison with data from previous years' reports.

Additional cancer data can be accessed via SLORA, an interactive database that allows comparison of Slovenian data with that of other countries in the European Union.
