Data type

The Queensland Cancer Registry is a population based registry recording all cases of cancer diagnosed in Queensland since 1982. Notification of cancer is a statutory requirement for hospitals, nursing homes, and pathology services.

The Registry coded cancers to ICD-O-3; the codes have been mapped to ICD-10-AM. The annual report publications prior to 2004 were based on ICD-O-2 and due to this change, data in this report are not comparable to publications prior to 2004.

This report summarizes invasive primary cancer incidence and mortality including cancers and their limited duration prevalence by site, sex, and 5-year age group for 2007. The 20 leading cancer sites for males and females and age-standardized rates for incidence and mortality by site and sex are given with counts for 1982-2006 (1982-1986 and 1987-1991 are aggregated). In addition to previous publications, the 2007 publication also includes relative survival by site, sex and years after diagnosis for 2003-2007.
