AIHW - Cancer Incidence (SA3) 2009-2013

This dataset presents the footprint of cancer incidence data in Australia for all cancers combined, and six selected cancers (female breast cancer, colorectal cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, melanoma of the skin, and prostate cancer) with their respective ICD-10 codes. The data spans the years 2009 to 2013 and is aggregated to Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) geographic areas from the 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The source of the incidence data is the 2014 Australian Cancer Database (ACD). The ACD is compiled by the Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing (AIHW) from data provided by the state and territory population-based cancer registries.
