The ninth volume in the Cancer Incidence in Five Continents series presents incidence data from populations all over the world for which good quality data are available. Scanning through the information gives a clear presentation of the changing cancer patterns worldwide. This volume has a wider coverage than before presenting data from around the year 2000 (ideally the period 1998-2002) not only for entire populations but also for sub-populations living in the same geographic area.
