Abstract

Background: Pancreatic cancer (PC) is as the twelfth most frequent cancer and the seventh most important cause of mortality by reason of cancer in the world. Being informed about the incidence and mortality of this cancer and the potential role of development is useful in health policy. The aim of this research is investigating disparities in the incidence and mortality of PC in the world countries in the year 2012. Methods: This study was an ecologic study in the World for assessing the correlation between Human Development Index (HDI) and its details (Gross national income (GNI) per capita, average years of schooling and life expectancy at birth) with age-standardized incidence rate (ASIR) and age-standardized mortality rate (ASMR) of PC. Results: In total, 337872 new cases of PC occurred in 2012 around the world, that 178116 and 159711 cases take happen in men and women respectively, also at the same year 330391 deaths of PC occurred, that 173,827 and 156564 cases were in men and women. In assessment the relationship between HDI and ASIR and ASMR of PC there is significant positive correlation equal to 0.767 (p < 0.001) between HDI and ASIR of PC, and a significant positive correlation equal to 0.776 (p < 0.001) between HDI and ASMR of PC. Conclusion: The incidence and mortality of PC has a significant positive correlation with the Human Development Index.
