New breast cancer data for 1997 (59K PDF; 45K DOC)
New national data has recently become available to estimate breast cancer incidence and death rates for 1997. These data, provided by the State and Territory cancer registries to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare are the most current as at September 1999. The data for Victoria are preliminary, although not expected to change significantly. These new data build on that released in the Breast Cancer in Australian Women 1982-1996 (AIHW, AACR 1999) report released in August 1999.
