This project has examined time-trends and variation between cancer types in incidence and survival for children aged 0-14 years, and variation of survival geographically and by area-based deprivation levels (Stack et al. 2007, Walsh et al. 2011). Further work is planned to update time-trends and to compare survival between children (age 0-14) and adolescents/young adults (age 15-19 and 20-24).
