Actual mortality data up to 2018 are based on the year of occurrence of the death and data for 2019 are based on the year of registration of the death.
The 2018–2021 incidence estimates are projections based on 2008–2017 incidence data. The 2020–2021 mortality estimates are projections based on 2010–2019 data.
Relative survival was calculated with the period method, using the period 2013–2017 (Brenner & Gefeller 1996). This captured the survival experience of people who were diagnosed with cancer before or during 2013–2017 and were still alive at the beginning of 2013. Note that this period does not contain estimated incidence data. Estimated incidence data includes DCO cases for NSW in 2017, NT cases in 2017, late-registration cases for Australia (excluding the NT) in 2017 and late-registration cases for the NT in 2016. Data from the National Death Index (NDI) on deaths (from any cause) that occurred up to 31 December 2017 were used to determine which people with cancer had died and when this occurred.
