Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:Help on this term

Rates directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.

Remoteness and SEIFA Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) are based on postcode of residential address at the time of diagnosis.

95% confidence intervals calculated for rates

Presented as:

  • a number 
  • per 100,000.
Computation:Help on this term

100,000 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)

Calculated separately for each type of cancer.
Numerator:Help on this term

For melanoma, bowel and lung cancer: Number of new cases in the reported year

For cervical and breast cancer in females: Number of new cases in women in the reported year
