This report provides the most up-to-date national data available for the National bowel cancer screening program (NBCSP). The first section presents an overview of bowel cancer in Australia, outlines the process of bowel cancer screening, and describes the development and management of the NBCSP. It also provides a brief overview of technical issues that should be considered when interpreting the information in this report, including those for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants.

The second section presents national data for the NBCSP from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013. Data are presented against a series of performance measures. A summary of each performance measure, including definition, rationale, information on data quality and a guide for interpretation, form the start of each chapter. This is followed by measure-specific background information and detailed analyses.
