What can this show?

Mortality data can give an indication of the demand for end-of-life care for people with cancer, and the need for support for their families and carers (for example, financial or bereavement services). 

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

What is mortality?
