Series of Cancer Factsheets in EU-27 countries
This cancer factsheets series produced by the JRC in collaboration with the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR) provide an overview of the cancer disease burden in EU-27.
The factsheets collect, condense and communicate information on the second most common cause of death in the European Union after cardiovascular diseases.
Cancer factsheets inform the reader about regional differences in incidence rates within Europe, on gender patterns and on trends over the last decades. They present a simple, yet up-to-date, review of information from different reliable sources in one single document.
The cancer factsheets are based on data provided by the ENCR-affiliated cancer registries and available in the data explorer section of the web application.
