The purpose of this study was to investigate the chronological changes in the age-adjusted incidence rates (AAIRs) of cancers of all sites as well as of 20 major cancers worldwide, which were tested using 5 consecutive IARC Data books from the early 1960s to mid-1980s.
We used log-transformed AAIR data (log AAIR) for the statistical analysis of group data.
For the follow-up study of a given neoplasia, we prepared 5 world populations using 5 international Data books, and calculated the mean and standard deviation of log AAIR for each tumor, for each sex and for each of 5 world populations for the follow-up study of cancer risks of 20 major cancers as well as cancers of all sites.
The results obtained are as follows :
A) the log AAIR of cancers of all sites, as compared between the early 1960s group and the mid-1980s group, significantly increased in both the male population (+32.1%) and the female population (+18.0%). (...)
