Cancer rankings data visualisation

The cancer rankings data visualisation provides the top 20 cancers diagnosed between 1982 and 2023. The visualisation also includes the leading 20 cancers causing death between 2007 and 2023. The rankings are available by sex and age group (including all ages) and can be presented as counts or rates. Age–standardised rates are standardised to the 2023 Australian population but the equivalent rates standardised to the 2001 Australian Standard Population are available in the cancer incidence and cancer mortality, by age visualisations.

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.
