Riassunto analitico
The increasing morbidity of cancer all along the world constitutes a major challenge for the next years: the present study aim is to investigate the correlation between economic activity and the spread of cancer in all world population. The starting point is a general view on the problem through some descriptive statistics of the phenomenon. Then I will present, through a brief literature review, emerging etiological paradigms of cancer, in order to select variables for the following regression. Then, after a methodological description of the data set, built upon Globocan 2012, World bank data, United Nation population statistics, and general information on cancer registries, the model will be introduced and the regression run. The variables selected should overcome the problem of international comparison, and it will reckon with increasing diagnostic technology. Lastly comments and suggestion on further researches will be provided
