Cancer in Germany 2011/2012
The “Cancer in Germany” report 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. As of 2009, Germany has achieved nationwide coverage of population-based cancer registration. However, because reliable data are not yet available from all federal states, it is still necessary for the ZfKD to estimate figures in some areas. Altogether, 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.
