Previous studies on cancer mortality in Danish Capital, Towns, and Rural Areas have been continued, and the material of death certificates subdivided into cancers of accessible and inaccessible sites, the latter category comprising and excluding gastric cancer. These comparisons have been carried out on material from the period 1935 to 1939 from which period comparisons between Danish, English, and Swiss materials were carried out in previous papers.

Male cancers of all subdivisions show a higher mortality in the Capital than in Rural Areas.
