Today, on 4 February, is World Cancer day. It is an opportunity to help to raise awareness and educate ourselves about the disease.

If you would like to know more about cancer in the EU, we have put together some links to Eurostat datasets and articles on this topic below.

These data are available in the Eurostat dedicated section on “Health” under the sub-headings “Causes of death / database/ General mortality” and “Health care / database / preventive services”.

If you are not a ‘data-type’ person, but more into reading, please have a look at the following Statistics Explained articles:

An overview of all articles related to “Health” is available here.

If you did not find what you were looking for, please contact one of our support services.
