(a) Deaths due to cancer are defined as ICD-10 codes C00-D48.
(b) Age standardised death rates enable the comparison of death rates between populations with different age structures by relating them to a standard population. The current ABS standard population is all persons in the Australian population at 30 June 2001. Standardised death rates (SDRs) are expressed per 100,000 persons.
(c) All causes of death data from 2006 onward are subject to a revision process - once data for a reference year are 'final', they are no longer revised. Affected data in this table are: 2006 (final) 2007 (final), 2008 (final), 2009 (revised), 2010 (preliminary). See Explanatory Notes 35-39 and Technical Notes in ABS Causes of Death, Australia, 2010 (cat. no. 3303.0)
