Abstract This article reports on a new register to replace the Swedish register of cancer cases established in 1958. Data filed in the new register may be linked to: occupation, branch of activity, worker's role in production, location of workpost, etc. Statistical evaluation of these data can assist research workers in targeting their investigations on specific hazards.
