Abstract: Apart from their administrative purpose, death certificate data are a major means of identifying public health problems and evaluating the effectiveness of programs developed to deal with these public health problems. The inaccuracies in death certification are well documented in the international literature. This study aimed to estimate the accuracy in cancer death certification locally, as well as present common types of errors in order to create educational awareness.
