Cancer in the Northern Territory 1991 - 2015: Incidence, Mortality and Survival

The report provides statistics on all cancers and each cancer site or site group for the entire NT population; for males and females; and for Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations. Equivalent summary statistics for the total Australian population are included for comparison. To allow comparison within the NT population and with the wider Australian population, the incidence and mortality rates are age-adjusted because the age distribution of the NT population is much younger than the total Australian population. Statistical modelling analysis is used to investigate trends of cancer incidence and mortality over time.
