The cancer rankings data visualisation provides the top 20 cancers diagnosed and the leading 20 cancers causing death between 1982 and 2020. 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 boxes found near the top of the dashboard.
Cancer incidence and mortality data is available as supplementary tables.
