Queensland Cancer Atlas

In 2011 the Cancer Research Centre (CRC) published the first Atlas of Cancer in Queensland: Geographical variation in incidence and survival 1998 to 2007, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the founding of CCQ. This Atlas continues to be the foundation and motivation for ongoing investigations into the causes of geographical inequalities and statistical development to support this research.
