The 1991 report from Poland's National Cancer Registry (in Polish and English) presents data on rates, counts, and MI Ratio for total cancers by year for the years 1963-1991, and data for select cancers by site for 1963, 1975, and 1991. Time trends for selected cancer incidence and mortality from 1963-1991 are also included, as are numbers and rates for incidence and mortality in 1991 by cancer site, sex, and 5-year age group. Data was provided by various subnational cancer registries; registration is uneven among provinces, however, and overall underregistration is estimated at about 13% for 1991.
