Description:
The Irish National Cancer Registry (NCR) is a statutory body that began full registration of all cancers in the Republic of Ireland in January 1994. The reporting of cancer is not mandatory in Ireland. However the NCR makes considerable effort to ensure that there is accurate and complete recording of all cases diagnosed, with active ascertainment and follow-up of cases. The NCR has also recorded all deaths due to cancer since the beginning of 1994 and deaths, from whatever cause, of all patients who have been registered as having cancer. In this study, we aim to give a broad review of data quality at the NCR by examining the comparability, completeness and validity of the data using some of the techniques outlined in papers by Parkin and Bray
