Information on every new case of cancer diagnosed in the Republic of Ireland is collected by trained nurses and maintained in a central register to provide a national cancer dataset on the incidence of cancer in Ireland. This data is subject to rigorous quality assurance, including external checks developed by the International Association for Research on Cancer, ensuring that our data conforms to the highest international standards in cancer registration. Datasets are produced routinely for annual incidence reports, specific research projects, for service planning and evaluation and other general enquires.
The Registry's confidentiality policy can be found here. Please read this policy before making a data request, or downloading incidence and/or survival data.
