ASR: age-standardized incidence rates per 100,000 population.
Data are obtained from GLOBOCAN databases, which provide access to the most recent estimates (for 2008) of the incidence of and mortality from 27 major cancers worldwide and is organized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) (http://globocan.iarc.fr/).
In addition to the ASR for geographic regions, countries with ASRs that are equal or more than 15.0 for the total (male and female) with total number of gastric cancer more than 100 are listed.
