Abstract

The study of the geographic distribution of cancer has proved useful in identifying high risk areas to be studied further using analytical epidemiological methods. The British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA) has developed a program to examine regional differences in cancer rates within British Columbia. This chapter will outline the geographic mapping program of the BCCA, explore some of the methodological issues and present selected results. -from Authors
