Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:Help on this term

The probability of surviving 5 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 Cancer survival and prevalence in Australia: period estimates from 1982 to 2010.

Analyses by state and territory, remoteness and Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage (IRSD) are based on usual residence of the person at diagnosis.

Presented as a percentage.
