Cancer survival data visualisation

For around 60 cancers, this data visualisation provides a range of cancer survival statistics. 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 survival: snapshot. Observed and relative survival rates for selected cancers, by sex and age, from 1987-1991 to 2012-2016. 

This visualisation contains survival information for around 60 cancers divided across Figures 1 to 4.

Figure 1 is a line graph that contains information on 1 to 5-year observed or relative survival rates for the selected cancer from 1987–1991 to 2012–2016.

Figure 2 is a column graph that contains information on 1 to 5-year observed or relative survival rates by sex for the selected cancer for the most recent period 2012–2016.

Figure 3 is a line graph that contains information on 1 to 5-year observed or relative survival rates for the selected cancer in order of increasing age group (0–4, 5–9, etc. up to 90+) for the most recent period 2012–2016.

Figure 4 is a line graph that contains 5-year conditional observed or relative survival, given the person has already survived 1 to 15 years after diagnosis, for the selected cancer in the most recent period 2012–2016.

Cancer survival data is available as supplementary tables.
