The completeness of cancer registration in the IKL (Integraal Kankercentrum Limburg) cancer registry, Limburg, the Netherlands, was evaluated for the years 1988-1990 by means of the independent case ascertainment method.
This study was performed in co-operation with the Registration Network of Family Practices (RNFP) of the University of Limburg.
The RNFP is a centralized database used by general practitioners (GP), containing their patients'background variables and diagnoses.
The contents of the two databases were compared using computerized record linkage.
If the information from both databases differed, this was verified using the source forms of the cancer registry and the GP involved.
