New Publication: "Cancer in Germany"
The latest “Cancer in Germany” report has just been translated. This report presents the most important epidemiological statistics and current trends for 27 different types of cancer. It contains details regarding disease incidence and mortality, along with regional and international comparisons, as well as illustrations of the distribution of tumour stages and of survival prospects.
As of 2009, Germany has achieved nationwide coverage of population-based cancer registration. However, as reliable data are not yet available from all federal states, it is still necessary for the ZfKD to estimate figures in some areas.
“Cancer in Germany” is published every two years by the Association of Population-based Cancer Registries in Germany (GEKID) and the German Centre for Cancer Registry Data (ZfKD) at the Robert Koch Institute. The results contained in this, the tenth edition, are based on data up to 2012.
