The Australian Cancer Database contains data about all new cases of cancer diagnosed in Australia since 1 January 1982, excluding basal and squamous cell carcinomas of the skin.
Cancer is a notifiable disease in all Australian states and territories. Relevant legislation requires certain individuals and organisations to notifiy all new cases of cancer to the jurisdiction's central cancer registry. These registries supply data annually to the AIHW, which cleans and standardises it and notifies the registries of inter-state duplicates.
