Cancer in Austria 2022
This is the eighth edition of the brochure "Cancer in Austria". It presents the development of 23 selected cancer types between 1995 and 2019 based on incidence, prevalence, survival and mortality, measures derived from the Austrian National Cancer Registry operated by Statistics Austria. Additional chapters provide information on cancers in children and adolescents and an overview of in situ tumors. The change in the legal basis and its implications are described in the chapter "Cancer Statistics Regulation 2019".
The scientific and health policy value of the data of the Austrian National Cancer Registry is determined by the completeness of the registry and the completeness of the individual reports. Special thanks therefore go to all persons, inside and outside hospitals, for their contribution to the high-quality Austrian cancer statistics and for their assistance in continuously improving the quality of the registry.
