Abstract: This report describes cancer incidence and mortality across the seven health districts of the Northern Territory. For non-Indigenous Territorians, cancer incidence and mortality does not vary much between the NT districts, with the exception of East Arnhem District where both all-cancer incidence and all-cancer mortality rates are less than national rates. In other districts there are smaller differences between NT non-Indigenous and total Australian all-cancer incidence and mortality rates, and the confidence intervals for district rates include the total Australian rate, indicating that these differences may be due to chance variation in the small number of cancers diagnosed in the NT’s small district populations.
