The 2007 report from Poland's National Cancer Registry, KRN (in Polish and English), presents numbers, rates, and MI ratio for total cancer incidence by site and sex, by year from 1965-2007. Numbers and rates for incidence and mortality in 2007 are given by cancer site, sex, and 5-year age group as well as by site, sex, and voivodeship; MI ratios by sex and site or voivodeship for 2007 are included as well. Data was provided by 16 subnational cancer registries; registration is uneven among provinces, however, and overall underregistration for the country is estimated at about 17% for 2007.
