Cancers in Australia

You can now compare cancer rates in your Hospital and Health Service (HHS) with the rest of Australia. For the period 2001-2010, cancer incidence rates for all Australian States and Territories combined can be displayed next to the rates for your HHS. National and HHS rates can be aggregated and filtered by cancer, sex, age, and year of diagnosis. Click here for details.

2012 cancer data with 2014 projections

Queensland cancer incidence and mortality data have been updated to 2012, with projections for 2014 and long-term projections to 2026. Population rates by HHS of residence are available for the period 2001-2012.

New Annual Percentage Change and Relative Survival

Annual Percentage Change (APC), Relative Survival, and Prevalence have been updated to include the latest estimates up to 2012.

HHS rates based on latest population data for 2001-2012

HHS cancer incidence and mortality rates for the period 2001-2012 are available based on the latest population data, released in 2014.

Updated Hospital and Health Service (HHS) listing

OASys now includes up to date HHS boundaries, including the new Torres and Cape HHS. From 1st July 2014, the Cape York HHS and Torres Strait HHS were combined into one single HHS.

New Potential Years of Life Lost (PYLL)

PYLL is available for sex, indigenous status, cancer and residence.

New Cause Specific Survival

Cause specific survival now includes the latest estimates up to 2012.

Geriatric Oncology

The new 'Geriatric Oncology' section focuses specifically on cancers among Queenslanders aged 65 and older. A new hierarchy under the Age dimension allows direct comparisons of geriatric (65+) versus non-geriatric (≤ 65) patients.

Socioeconomic deciles based on 2011 SEIFA

Socioeconomic groups have been updated based on 2011 SEIFA (Socioeconomic Index for Areas). For the period 2001-2012, cancer rates can be aggregated by quintiles or deciles of SEIFA Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage and Disadvantage based on 2011 Census.

New look and faster calculations

OASys has been redesigned with a cleaner interface, making it easier to navigate. Faster algorithms for rates and projections lets you generate larger and more complex reports in less time.
