The National Cancer Registry of Ireland (NCRI) was established in 1991 and has been collecting comprehensive cancer information for the population of the Republic of Ireland since 1994. This information is used in research into the causes of cancer, in education and information programmes, and in the planning and management of cancer services to deliver the best cancer care to the whole population.

We are excited to add three new profiles from Denmark and Sweden to our resource of over 400 healthcare database profiles.

If you have one subscription level (e.g., 5 users) and want to add more users, we can upgrade your subscription level that allows more users (e.g., up to 10 or Unlimited users).

The registry collects death certificates for all deaths that occur in the country, including deceased who are not registered as inhabitants of Norway. It also registers the deaths of Norwegians who die abroad.
