Catchment Area of MCR

The catchment area of the Munich Cancer Registry (MCR) expanded successively since its establishment in 1978. The coloring of the map depicted below is intended to reflect those changes.
Beginning with the city of Munich, the cancer documentation has been continuously extended to the surrounding counties. Thus, the as of 1978 existing "old catchment area" comprises the city of Munich and the counties Dachau, Ebersberg, Erding, Freising, Munich county, and Starnberg, with 2.3 million inhabitants.
Governed by the Bavarian Cancer Registry Act (BayKRG, adopted in 2000) the countrywide cancer registration was inaugurated in Bavaria starting in 2002, which resulted in enhancement of MCR catchment area from 2.3 to 3.84 million inhabitants. The new catchment area as of 2002 includes in addition to the existing population the counties Weilheim-Schongau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bad Toelz-Wolfratshausen, Miesbach, Rosenheim, Berchtesgaden, Traunstein, Altoetting, Muehldorf am Inn, and Landshut.
The amendment of the Bavarian Cancer Registry Act at the end of 2005 going into effect on January 1, 2007, once again induced a restructuring of the MCR catchment area, which yielded an involvement of the entire Upper Bavaria region including Landshut county. With this change, the population of the MCR area increased and amounts meanwhile 4.81 million inhabitants.
