Collection and usage attributes
The probability of surviving five years in people with cancer is divided by the probability of surviving five years in the general population (matched on age, sex and calendar year).
Analysis will be undertaken using the ‘period’ method of calculation. See AIHW, CA & AACR 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:||Probability of surviving for five years in people diagnosed with cancer.|
