Data Quality

For these results, data for England were provided for 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020 from the Rapid Cancer Registration Dataset (RCRD), which is sourced mainly from the Cancer Services and Outcomes Dataset (COSD) containing proxy tumour registrations, as the standard Cancer Registration data were unavailable. More details can be found here.
