Official Statistics

Official Statistics on all cancers diagnosed in Northern Ireland during 1993-2020 were published on 9th Feb 2023 at 9:30am. This release provides details of the number of cancers diagnosed each year along with incidence rates over time and data for a range of geographic areas and cancer types. Survival trends and prevalence (the number of people alive) is also provided. For completeness data on cancer mortality is provided courtesy of the General Register Office for Northern Ireland.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which began in 2020, an additional report has been compiled for each cancer type detailing how incidence and survival from cancer has changed between 2018-2019 and 2020 thereby providing an overview of the impact of the pandemic on cancer patients and cancer services in general.

These reports along with the data for each cancer type are available here:
