Summary 

This report provides incidence and mortality tables for new cases, deaths, as well as crude, cumulative, and age standardized rates based on 1997 data from the Tasmanian Cancer Registry. The tables are broken down by sex and 5 year age groups and cancers are coded in ICD-9. The report highlights female breast cancer data from 1978-1997 and non-melanoma skin cancer data for 1980, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1996, and 1997, and provides regional distribution of cancers.
