Pancreatic cancer is a fatal cancer with a 5-year survival of only about 4% for all tumors. Mortality is a familiar projection to address the burden of cancers, but according to the Iranian death registry, about 20% of death statistics are still recorded in misclassified categories. The aim of this study was to estimate pancreatic cancer mortality for Iranian population, using a bayesian approach in order to revise this misclassification.
