Collection and usage attributes
|Computation description:||Selected cancers of public health importance are: melanoma of the skin, bowel cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer diagnosed in females.
For melanoma, bowel cancer and lung cancer, the numerator is the number of new primary cases diagnosed in the Australian population in the reported year. The denominator is the total Australian population for the same year.
For cervical and breast cancer in females, the numerator is the number of new primary cases diagnosed in the Australian female population in the reported year. The denominator is the total Australian female population for the same year.
Calculation is 100,000 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator), calculated separately for each type of cancer, presented as a rate per 100,000 and age-standardised to the Australian population as at 30 June 2001, using 5-year age groups from 0-4 years to 85+ years. Indigenous disaggregations were standardised using 0-4 years to 75+ years due to small populations at older ages in some jurisdictions.Rates are directly age-standardised to the Australian population as at 30 June 2001.

|Further data development / collection required:||Specification: Long-term
The quality of Indigenous identification varies by jurisdiction and will require improvement to enable robust reporting.
|Other issues caveats:||The quality of Indigenous identification varies between jurisdictions. National disaggregation by Indigenous status is based on jurisdictions with adequate data quality.
Remoteness area and SEIFA of residence are based on postcode of residential address at the time of diagnosis.
Disaggregation by Indigenous status, remoteness area and SEIFA of residence within individual states/territories is subject to data quality considerations.Some disaggregations could result in numbers too small for publication.
