Collection and usage attributes
People in the denominators are matched for sex and age (to match to ‘age at diagnosis’ for people in the cancer cohort).
Analysis will be undertaken using the ‘cohort’ method of calculation. See AIHW 2008 Cancer Series no. 42. Cat. no. CAN 38.
Analysis by remoteness and SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person at diagnosis.
Presented as a percentage.
