Data type

The 2012 report from Poland's National Cancer Registry, KRN (in Polish and English), presents numbers and rates, and MI ratio for all cancers by voivodeship and sex, and by year from 1965-2011. Five- and ten-year prevalence by broad age group and site in 2012 are also discussed. Numbers and rates for incidence and mortality in 2012 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. Data was provided by 16 subnational cancer registries; registration is uneven among provinces, however. An estimation of overall completeness of registration in the country is awaiting establishment of a new measure.
