Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:

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.

Computation:100 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator)
Numerator:Number of people diagnosed with cancer who survived for five years after diagnosis.

Disaggregation:

Nationally, by:

  • sex
  • remoteness
  • SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) quintiles

Disaggregation by state and territory is not available. It requires calculation against jurisdictional life tables and approval from cancer registries.
