The most frequent cancers will be studied. According to GLOBOCAN 2012, the three most common cancers are lung cancer (1.8 million cases, 13.0% of total cancers), breast cancer (1.7 million cases, 11.9% of the total) and colorectal cancer (1.4 million cases, 9.7% of the total). Of course, these figures are an average, and there may be disparities in the incidence of cancers in developing countries. An approach by continent and possibly continents will be appreciated.
Participants will articulate their analysis from 3 datasets:
Main dataset: an open world IARC cancer mortality dataset for the World Health Organization (WHO) broken down by type of cancer, country, year, gender. On average, the depth of accessible data is about 25 years. Among the countries represented are the developing countries, with data available from the African continent and, for comparative purposes, the mortality data of the industrialized countries.
Complementary datasets: 1) an open dataset of the incidence of cancer in the world derived from WHO IARC, broken down by type of cancer, country, year, gender. The data have a minimum depth of 15 years. 2) an open dataset of population indicators, produced by the World Bank: there are data from economic, social, educational, agro-environmental indicators, etc.
