Three data sources for the information on cancer in China are described in this paper: (i) mortality data from national retrospective surveys (1973-75 and 1990-92); (ii) mortality data obtained through special research projects (CHIS, DSP and mortality survey in 1986-89); and (iii) incidence and mortality data from cancer registries. Different combinations of mortality and incidence data can be used to estimate the pattern or burden of cancer in China. Registration of cancer incidence and mortality in China should be standardized and expanded, in order to enhance availability of accurate data for estimating cancer burden in China.
