Analysis of cancer incidence by small area (electoral division level) allows the Registry to examine local variations in cancer risk and to describe geographical variations in more detail.  Collaborating with researchers in the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry, an All-Ireland Cancer Atlas was published which illustrated the geographical variation in cancer incidence on the island of Ireland and described the socio-economic and demographic effects on cancer risk, including the effect of population density, percentage unemployed and degree level education.
