The 1993 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 1963-1993, and data for select cancers by site for 1963, 1978, and 1993. Time trends for selected cancer incidence and mortality from 1963-1993 are also included, as are numbers and rates for incidence and mortality in 1993 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 5% for 1993.
