The 2011 report from Poland's National Cancer Registry, KRN (in Polish and English), presents numbers, rates, and MI ratio for all cancers by voivodeship and sex, and by year from 1965-2011. Histological confirmation of cases as well as survival of cases diagnosed in 2003-2005 are also discussed. Numbers and rates for incidence and mortality in 2011 are given by cancer site, sex, and 5-year age group as well as by site, sex, and voivodeship; as are MI ratios by sex and site or voivodeship. Data was provided by 16 subnational cancer registries; registration is uneven among provinces, however, and overall underregistration for the country is estimated at about 6% for 2011.
