Prevalence of Cancers in Germany

The estimates on the prevalence of cancers in Germany between 1990 und 2010, presented for the first time in this contribution to Federal Health Reporting, were determined by the Robert Koch Institute on the basis of the annual incdence and survival rates. Detailed data is also available for 20 selected cancer sites, which is of great topical interest for health policy, because these estimates can be used to determine the resources which the health system has to make available for patient care, the costs that are likely to arise, and the developments which can be expected in the future.

20 Years After the Fall of the Berlin Wall:
How has Health Developed in Germany?

This report reviews 20 years of "health history" in the Federal Republic of Germany. It examines similarities and differences between western and eastern Germany since reunification on the basis of available health data. In the early 1990s, considerable differences could still be observed in the health situation of the populations in east and west. In the meantime, however, a broad convergence has taken place between the two – indeed, in some fields the figures are virtually identical. The regional differences that remain usually have social causes: people are least likely to enjoy good health in areas where living conditions are worst, e.g. in regions with high levels of poverty and unemployment.

Population-Based Distribution of Selected Laboratory Parameters from KiGGS

This GBE contribution presents the percentile distributions of key laboratory parameters observed in the KiGGS. The KiGGS data are based on a sample size of more than 14,000 blood and serum samples, which is large enough to map the age- and gender-specific histories of the individual parameters. The reference figures provided in this publication can be used in the future as background information in clinical and population-based studies. (German version only)
