Cancer statistics are useful for identifying the magnitude of cancer problems in populations and to evaluate the effects of cancer control measures. Analyses of cancer statistics often provide etiological clues and suggest methods for countermeasures for cancer prevention. This book presents detailed cancer mortality statistics and features many illustrations designed to help researchers better understand trends in cancer statistics. It gives cancer mortality data in Japan through 1990 and cancer incidence data from 1987-1989.
