Bulgaria has undergone considerable social changes in the last 40 years, including a transition from a 75% rural to a 75% urban population.
These changes might be expected to be reflected in disease rates.
The Bulgarian cancer registry has computerized data on cancer incidence throughout the country from 1981 onwards.
Incidence rates in Bulgaria from 1981 to 1990 of cancers of the lung, stomach, large bowel, prostate and bladder in males and of cancers of the breast, lung, stomach, large bowel, cervix and corpus uteri in females were analysed with particular attention to time trends, age-specific changes in rates and urban/rural differences.
Poisson regression was used for statistical analysis.
