Cancer incidence in {{ccg16nm}}

Between {{asr_start}} and {{asr_end}} there was an average of {{inc_asr}} new {{cancer_type}} cancer diagnoses per 100,000 of the population each year. {{nation_comparison_text}}

The incidence rates shown are known as 'age-standardised'. They take into account age differences in the underlying populations and provide meaningful comparisons.

What can this show?

Incidence data can give an indication of the level of need for initial diagnostic and treatment services.

This can help make sure resources are targeted to certain geographic areas, or for people with certain types of cancer.

What is incidence?

Incidence refers to the number of new cases of cancer diagnosed within a certain period of time (usually a year).

How does incidence vary by cancer type?

The chart below shows the age-standardised incidence rate and average number of new cases per year for a range of cancer types.

For CCGs, the colours indicate if the age-standardised rate is significantly different to the all England rate.

Data release dates

CCG incidence data given here is for 2015 data.

Data on this tool will be updated with 2016 data later in 2018.

 

Low numbers have been suppressed. See FAQs for further information.

How does cancer incidence change over time?

Trends allow you to see a pattern of what has happened over a historical period of time. The chart below shows age-standardised rates and the number of new cases, which are based on the year in which an individual is diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer types will not be shown when numbers are lower than 5.

Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health. But we are here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can.
