How to Use Canadian Cancer Surveillance On-Line

This section contains some of the limitations of the data provided, how to interpret the results properly, the source of the data as well as the methods used to calculate the statistics and where to go for more information.

   

Cancer Incidence Maps

This section contains maps of Canada that display cancer incidence by geographic locations with higher or lower than average cancer incidence. The Comparative Incidence Figure (CIF) of a particular cancer is shown by comparing all census divisions in Canada. Maps can be created for various age groups, cancer sites and time periods, depending on your preference. Age-standardized incidence rates can also be displayed.

   

Cancer Mortality Maps

This section contains maps of Canada that display cancer mortality by geographic locations with higher or lower than average cancer mortality. The Comparative Mortality Figure (CMF) of a particular cancer is shown by comparing all census divisions in Canada. Maps can be created for various age groups, cancer sites and time periods, depending on your preference. Age-standardized mortality rates can also be displayed.
