Abstract: Cancer incidence and mortality are important population health outcomes. This fact sheet updates previous Northern Territory (NT) cancer reports to provide long term trends in cancer incidence and mortality between 1991 and 2018. Four data sources were used for this fact sheet: NT cancer data (NT Cancer Registry), Australian cancer data (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare), mortality data (Australian Coordinating Registry) and population data (Australian Bureau of Statistics). The NT population data are estimates of the resident population by age, sex, Indigenous status and health district (1971- 2019). Population data used in this fact sheet differ from previous cancer reports; consequently, caution is advised when comparing rates provided here with rates provided in previous NT cancer reports
