Interactive statistics and graphs

This website allows users to obtain summary statistics about cancer incidence and mortality in Victoria in a variety of table and graph formats. The data that are available include cancer incidence and mortality for Victoria by type of cancer, age group, sex, year of diagnosis, international region of birth and region of residence within Victoria.

These reports are based on the latest available data (1982-2016) as they stood at the time of publication in December 2017. Future requests for data and publications may not exactly correspond to these figures, as they will reflect subsequent additions and amendments to the dataset. Data for the same period are also published in our Cancer in Victoria: Statistics and trends series.
