Data registration

Municipalities have a statutory obligation to ensure the collection of personal data on screening visits and examinations and their results, and their submission to the Mass Screening Registry. The quality of the screening is evaluated based on these data.

The functionality of the screening chain reflects the quality of screening. Data on the screening chain is published annually in the screening statistics. Screening statistics are reported annually by age group and region. The hospital district is the smallest area for which screening data can be obtained.
