Purpose
The registry collects information about new cases of cancer and produces statistics about incidence, prevalence, survival and mortality. QCR is one of the larger population based cancer registries in Australia and a unique data resource, dating back to 1982. Together with other State and Territory data, QCR data is used to compile national statistics on cancer incidence and mortality. The data is used to help support key activities such as health service planning and cancer research.

Methodology
Notifications of cancer are based on initial diagnosis of the cancer, often from pathology laboratories. There may or may not be a hospital admission of the person suffering from the cancer. Further notifications are received from hospitals when a cancer patient is treated and from the Registrar-General when a person is certified as suffering from cancer at death. Occasionally advice of such a death is the only notification of a person to the QCR.
