Our objectives were (1) to describe an analysis of the spatial pattern of cancer incidence in Ontario and (2) to discuss the quality of data in the Ontario Cancer Registry with resect to the accuracy of local cancer rates.
Cancer incidence rates were calculated for 22 cancer sites in 49 counties of Ontario during 1976 to 1986.
Capture-recapture methods were used to estimate completeness of case registration, and completeness of residence information was also assess.
Spatial autocorrelation was used in measuring the geographic pattern of incidence rates.
Comparisons were also made between sexes and with earlier data from 1966 to 1975.
