Although a registry was originally the place (like registry house in edinburgh) where information was collected (in registers), the word registry has also come to mean the collection itself. A registry is usually organised so the data can be analyzed. For example, analysis of data in a tumour registry maintained at a hospital may show a rise in lung cancer among women.
