Atlas of Cancer Mortality


A new edition of the German Cancer Atlas was published in 1997. This edition describes the trends in cancer mortality in Germany from the early 1950 to 1995 and its geographic distribution during the period 1981-1990 for 24 types of cancer and for cancer as a whole.
The data of the third edition of the German Cancer Atlas (published in 1997) are regularly updated by co-workers of the Unit in an Internet version (, ‘Krebsatlas’) and used for various descriptive-epidemiologic investigations which will not be enumerated in detail.
