Cancer Survival Rates

Estimates for observed survival and age-standardized relative survival, confidence intervals for estimates, trends by cancer type.  

Survival estimates

By cancer type. This document shows:

  • Table 2: 95% confidence interval (CI) for survival estimates provided in Table 1

By sex and cancer type. This document shows:

  • Table 1: 1-, 3- and 5-year observed survival by sex and cancer type 
  • Table 2: 1-, 3- and 5-year age-standardized relative survival by sex and cancer type
  • Table 3: 95% confidence interval (CI) for survival estimates provided in Table 1
  • Table 4: 95% confidence interval (CI) for survival estimates provided in Table 2

By stage at diagnosis and cancer type. This document shows:

  • Table 1: 1-, 3- and 5-year observed survival and age-standardized relative survival, by stage at diagnosis for breast, colorectal (colon, rectal), prostate and lung

By age group and cancer type. This document shows:

  • Table 1: 1-, 3- and 5-year age-specific observed survival and relative survival for breast, colorectal (colon, rectal), lung and prostate
  • Table 2: 95% confidence interval (CI) for survival estimates provided in Table 1
