Cancer rankings data visualisation

The cancer rankings data visualisation provides the top 20 cancers diagnosed and the leading 20 cancers causing death between 1982 and 2021. The rankings are available by sex and age group (including all ages) and can be presented as counts or rates.

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.

Visualisation not available for printing

Please note that the 2021 release of CdiA ranks by all age and 20-year age groups. The previous release provided rankings by 5-year age groups. Rankings for different age groups may be constructed from cancer incidence and mortality by age Excel workbooks.

Cancer incidence and mortality data is available as supplementary tables.
