Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:Help on this term

Rates directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.

Analyses by state and territory, remoteness and Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) are based on the state or territory and Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) of the person at the time of their diagnosis.

Rates that are considered unstable and should be interpreted with caution will be noted. Rates that are considered very unstable will not be published.

Presented as:

  • a number (for state and territory by cancer type disaggregations)
  • 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 females in the reported year.

2010 (resupplied for updated NSW and ACT data), 2012—State and territory (for each cancer type).

2010 (resupplied for updated NSW and ACT data) (not reported), 2012—State and territory (for each cancer type), by:

  • remoteness (Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Remoteness Structure)
  • 2011 SEIFA IRSD quintiles

  • Indigenous status

Some disaggregation may result in numbers too small for publication.

Disaggregation by SEIFA and remoteness data are subject to availability of suitable population data.
