This report card provides a quick, at-a-glance view of cancer incidence and mortality in Australia by Primary Health Network (PHN) and Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) or all cancers combined, and six selected cancers.

Incidence data refer to the number of new cases of cancer diagnosed in a given time period. It does not refer to the number of people newly diagnosed (because one person can be diagnosed with more than one cancer in a year). Cancer incidence data come from the AIHW Australian Cancer Database (ACD) 2012.

Mortality data refer to the number of deaths from cancer in a given time period. Cancer mortality data come from the AIHW National Mortality Database.

For further details on cancer incidence and mortality see Cancer in Australia 2017.
