This report presents detailed projections of cancer incidence for major cancers.The report provides projections of both incidence rates and expected numbers of new cases by age and sex for 60 cancers and groups of cancers. The projections in this report are based on trends in national cancer incidence data from 1982 to 2001 held by the AIHW in the National Cancer Statistics Clearing House. The projections in this report were commissioned by the National Cancer Strategies Group to support planning of cancer services and this report is an important reference for all those interested in the prevention, detection, treatment and management of cancer in Australia.
