This report presents statistical information on the ten most common cancers affecting women in the Northern Territory (NT), including participation rates for NT women in cervical and breast screening programs, and the outcomes from these programs. Cancer incidence, mortality, and survival rates for Indigenous and non-Indigenous women, with comparisons of screening statistics for the NT and those for Australia as a whole are included. Data is also presented for specific age-groups, regional areas, and time periods.
