Traduction en anglais : Lymphomas and leukaemias as record in germany by population-based cancer registries.
Federal law enacted in 1995 aims at nation-wide cancer registration, the details of realization based on local regulations being left to the individual Federal states.
The impact of different approaches and regulations on the results of registration was investigated at three well-established records in the Saarland, Hamburg and North-Rhine Westphalia, taking the group of lymphoma and leukaemia (ICD 200-208) taken as an example.
Incidence and mortality rates calculated by the record files for the period from 1987 to 1994 were compared.
The resulting mortality/incidence ratios were compared as well as the percentage of cases in each register with death certificates (DCO) as the only information source.
There was a distinct increase of incidence rates visible in Hamburg and Münster.
As far as the male patients was concerned, both records attained the level of Saarland at the end of the period.
However, the leukaemia and lymphoma mortality figures for males and females was about 10% lower for Saarland than in the comparative regions.
The male mortality incidence ratio was 0.55 for Saarland versus 0.60 average in Hamburg and Münster at the end of the period.
In Saarland and Hamburg there was a decrease of DCO-cases from 14% to less than 6% in 1994.
More constant values around 11% could be observed in the Münster registry. (...)
