Queensland Cancer Statistics

Queensland Cancer statistics

We have designed a tool that you can access via the internet to look at cancer data in Queensland.  It's easy. It's free and it's called OASys.

OASys is a powerful tool which allows you to gain statistics for studying the impact of cancer in Queensland.


OASys can be used for many purposes and by a wide variety of health professionals, such as:

  • Clinicians: access information relating to survival rates, to monitor changes in survival pre and post introduction of new cancer treatments
  • Researchers: use Queensland data to describe the cancer population and characteristics under study. See our Data & Access page for more information
  • Executives: access detailed data about cancer service use with reference to specific demographics or epidemiological groups when planning new services.
  • Administrators: Use incidence projections for operational planning eg. How many breast cancer patients are projected to be diagnosed in my HHS in the next 5 years?
  • Policy makers: For evaluation of health interventions/programs and their impact on cancer incidence, mortality and survival


We have developed a way of bringing together all the relevant databases that hold information about individuals diagnosed with cancer. When we bring the databases together, we put them through a rigorous matching and linking process, and then de-identify and analyse the data.  The end result is our analysis system called OASys. A one stop shop that paints a picture of cancer in Queensland.
