Description:

Statistics are used by Northern Ireland Cancer Screening Programmes as a means to measure effectiveness. Counting the number of women who go for screening is important because the more women who attend for smear tests the more effective the programme as a whole is. In its Priorities for Action statement, the Department of Health set a target for the Cervical Screening Programme that by 2004, 75% of the eligible female population of Northern Ireland should have been screened at least once in the previous five years.
