"This study is a population based observational study conducted on the French administrative
databases to estimate cancer incidence in 2012 by using the "ECHANTILLON GENERALISTE DES
BENEFICIAIRES" (EGB, a 1/97th dynamic random sample of the SNIIRAM).
The EGB database contains anonymous and prospectively recorded data about all beneficiaries'
medical reimbursements. Many algorithm definitions are defined to estimate the incident rate
of cancer in 2012 from the EGB database. The incidence rates obtained by each algorithm
definition are compared to national incidence rates by indirect age and sex standardization.
National incidence rates are obtained from "FRANCE CANCER INCIDENCE ET MORTALITE" (FRANCIM):
the French network of cancer registries."
