Survival from Childhood Cancer, Great Britain, 1971-2005

The data present the percentage survival rates at five years after diagnosis for children in the National Registry of Childhood Tumours (NRCT) who were diagnosed in the five-year periods 1971-75, 1976-80, 1981-85, 1986-1990, 1991-1995, 1996-2000 and 2001-05. Data are given for most of the main groups in the International Classification of Childhood Cancer, Third Edition, and for the most important individual subtypes of childhood cancer. The numbers of registrations contributing to these data are often slightly smaller than those in the tables of Childhood Cancer Registrations because they exclude children with no follow-up information.

The data can be downloaded either as an excel spreadsheet (.xls) or as a comma separated text file (.csv).
