The global burden of skin disease in 2010: an analysis of the prevalence and impact of skin conditions.
Using more data than has been used previously, the burden due to skin disease prevention and treatment is enormous in both high- and low-income countries.

The incidence of treated non‐melanoma skin cancer in Australia in 2002 and trends since 1985 are measured and trends are investigated by histological type, sex, age group, latitude and skin type.
Reduction of solar keratoses by regular sunscreen use.
Regular use of sunscreens prevents the development of solar keratoses and, by implication, possibly reduces the risk of skin cancer in the long-term.
Trends in the incidence of non‐melanocytic skin cancer (NMSC) treated in Australia 1985–1995: Are primary prevention programs starting to have an effect?
Although NMSC incidence rates continue to rise, there have been reductions in BCC observed in younger age groups, suggesting that public health campaigns to reduce sun exposure may be having a beneficial effect on skin cancer rates.

Exposure to sunlight, particularly large doses of sunlight sufficient to cause sunburn in childhood that will be remembered many years later, is the only environmental risk factor that has been shown consistently is exposure to sunlight.
Trends in non‐melanocytic skin cancer treated in Australia: The second national survey
The latitudinal gradients observed in 1985 were even stronger in 1990; the population living north of 37°s experienced a 30% increase in the incidence of treated NMSC between 1985 and 1990, while the populationliving south of 37s had a 25% decrease.
Incidence of non-melanocytic skin cancer treated in Australia
A person's skin reaction to strong sunlight was a good indicator of the risk of skin cancer, tanning ability being inversely related to its incidence.

The incidence and mortality rates of skin cancer are rising in the United States and in many other countries. Concerns about stratospheric ozone depletion adding to the problem have made many…

It is concluded that melanoma risk factor exposure of populations can change fairly rapidly and that well-conducted health promotion campaigns can play a part in producing such change.

Background Nonmalignant skin conditions are believed to be common in adults, although there are very few community‐based studies to determine their exact frequency.
