The childhood cancer incidence section can be found on the 'Childhood cancer' tab in the Incidence statistics section of the website.

Here is some important information about this section:

  • Childhood cancer shows incidence statistics by sex and year for children.
  • You can search by cancer, year range, age range and rate type.
  • The standard age range for reporting of childhood cancer incidence is 0 to 14, but the option is also available here to generate statistics for the wider range 0 to 19. All 5 year age groups within this age range are available.
  • The cancer list is made up of special childhood cancer categories. This list is known as ICCC (International Classification of Childhood Cancer), and it includes benign and uncertain-behaviour tumours of the brain and central nervous system.
  • Rate types of European and World age standardisation are available. For childhood cancer, the default rate type is World Age Standardised Rate.

You can review this, and other important information about the on-line cancer incidence, on the 'About' tab of the Incidence statistics screen.
