The first comprehensive study of cancer health system expenditures in Australia covered the year 1993-94 and was released in 1998. This report updates the expenditure estimates to 2000-01 and includes 'other neoplasms' as well as cancers. The methodology has been revised in some areas and the analysis applied across the cancer site groups used in the first Australian Burden of Disease Study.
