Abstract

Mortality statistics and cancer morbidity data derived from registration are the two main sources of information on the frequency of cancer occurrence (cancer risk) in developed countries. Other sources, such as hospital or necropsy statistics, are not usually population-based and thus provide heavily biased estimates of cancer risk. Information obtained from cancer surveys is similar to cancer registry data in most of the characteristics discussed below.
