A whole new world of cancer control data at your fingertips

Date posted: 22 November 2017

Cancer Australia has launched Australia’s first interactive website of national data across the continuum of cancer control – the National Cancer Control Indicators (NCCI) – which represents a significant advance in how population based cancer data in Australia is consolidated and presented.

NCCI is a unique, dynamic national resource that forms a bridge between information and outcomes, enabling users to see interconnections and relationships across cancer control, and to monitor trends and benchmark internationally.

This will enhance understanding, stimulate enquiry and inform future directions in cancer control, whether in research, policy or clinical care.

Through NCCI, users can choose the type and depth of information they require through interactive charts, which provide a visual representation of each indicator. Data can also be filtered by tumour type and by category, such as population group, sex, age, and socio-economic status.

In developing NCCI Cancer Australia has involved, and will continue to collaborate with, Australia’s key national cancer data custodians, including the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Australian Government Department of Health.
