Cancer rankings data visualisation

The cancer rankings data visualisation provides the top 20 cancers diagnosed between 1982 and 2022. The rankings are available by sex and age group (including all ages) and can be presented as counts or rates. Cancer mortality rankings are excluded from this visualisation this year and are excluded until the cancer mortality data investigations are complete. It is expected that this work will be completed in time for the 2023 release of Cancer data in Australia.

Two rankings tables are provided to allow comparisons to be made. Help with terms, and information about the data, is available by placing the mouse pointer over the icons found near the top of the page.

This visualisation contains tabulated rankings of the top 20 cancers most commonly diagnosed from 1982 to the most recent year available for reporting at the time of release. Data is available for all ages combined and by 20-year age groups from 0–19, 20–39, 40–59, 60–79 and 80 and over.
