NCR data & figures

With NCR data & figures you can make your own graphs and tables on cancer incidence in the Netherlands according to localisation, sex, age and region. The data are available from 1989 to 2023. Data of 2022 and 2023 concern preliminary data.

You can compose graphs and tables yourself by selecting a cancer in the menu 'Cancer type'. After choosing one or more cancer types, the selection can be confirmed by clicking 'Submit'. Then a default figure and table will appear, but the selection can be adapted according to your preferences.
