Figures for 1971 to 1994 have been extracted from the “frozen” historical dataset.
The published figures for 1971 to 1978 correspond to all malignancies, not all registrations. From 1979 the numbers refer to all malignant and benign cancer registrations including non-melanoma skin cancer (C44).
Successful work has been completed to code a backlog of cases for non-melanoma skin cancer (C44) since 2013, which will show an increase in the published data in 2014.
Figures for 2013 to 2016 were refreshed by February 2019, whereas figures for 1995 to 2011 were frozen in January 2018. Previously published figures are taken from the corresponding cancer registration report.
