All Types of Cancer
Data analyses and reports
- Detailed incidence and mortality data, lifetime risk, prevalence and survival statistics: All cancer types.
- A summary table of the main statistics for all cancer types.
Below are the most recently updated data. Please note:
- Within each page some files are quite large and may take a few minutes to download.
- You may need to use the drop-down menus within the spreadsheets to define your selections of 'Area of Residence', 'Sex', and 'Cancer site/type' to find the data that you require.

1. These data relate to all cases of cancer registered in Scotland, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer. (for explanation- http://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Cancer/FAQ/#15).
2. Survival figures are not age standardised.
3. Change in incidence and mortality is estimated by Poisson regression.
