Time trends of mortality from digestive cancers in Italy during the period 1970-1989 were here studied either at the national level and for wide geographical areas (North, Center and South). Cancers of oral cavity and pharynx, of colon and rectum, of gallbladder and of the pancreas presented, during the considered period a generalized increasing trend. Stomach cancer mortality was decreasing in both sexes and in all areas, but a less marked rate of decrease appeared for younger cohorts, particularly for women. Trends almost stable, or constrasting across sexes and age classes, were observed for malignant tumours of the oesophagus and of the liver.
