The quality of information on Indigenous status varies among these data sources by jurisdiction and year of collection. In some areas, data presented are restricted to those states and territories where information on Indigenous status is considered of sufficient completeness for reporting. Please see details below.
It is not known how many Indigenous Australians are misclassified as ‘non-Indigenous’ or classified as ‘unknown’ Indigenous status in each data set. However, as some Indigenous Australians are likely to be misclassified as ‘non-Indigenous Australians’ or classified as ‘unknown’ Indigenous status, the statistics presented in this report are likely to be under-estimates. Completeness of Indigenous status classification in each data set may vary by jurisdiction, therefore comparisons should be made with caution.
Cancer Institute NSW has recently identified issues with its Indigenous status variable for incidence from 2008 onwards. Therefore the rates and counts reported here may not be final.
Data are presented for all cancers combined and for the following selected cancer types: bladder cancer, breast cancer (in females), cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, head and neck cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, melanoma of the skin, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, oesophageal cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, thyroid cancer, cancer of unknown primary site and uterine cancer. These cancer were selected due to high incidence or mortality for either Indigenous or non-Indigenous Australians. All other cancers, while not reported, were included in calculations for incidence, mortality and prevalence ranks. For definition of these cancers see Cancer in Australia 2017.
