Using 49 figures and 93 tables, this report describes the patterns of cancer mortality in migrants to Australia compared with those in the Australian-born population. The report provides details on the most common causes of death among the 24 largest migrant groups and compares these cancer death rates with those for other migrant groups and with rates in the migrants' countries or origin.
