To provide a basis for the evaluation of mammographic screening programmes in Denmark, a study was undertaken of the regional differences in breast cancer incidence and mortality.
All 16 regions were followed for the 20 year period, 1970-89, before the start of the first population-based mammographic screening programme in the Copenhagen municipality in 1991.
Multiplicative Poisson models were used for the analysis. in general, the incidence increased during this period from 55 to 70 [per 100,000 standardised world standard population (WSP) ], and the analysis shows this to be most pronounced among women below age 60.
The mortality was more stable, changing only from 24 to 28 (per 100,000 standardised WSP), but a significant increase occurred in the late 1980s.
