National Cancer Atlas

Under the leadership of ACEMS CI Kerrie Mengersen, the Centre is working with the Cancer Council Queensland to develop the National Cancer Atlas, which will use cutting edge spatial statistical methods to map how the burden of cancer varies geographically across Australia. A key focus of the Atlas is to develop statistical spatial models for the small counts in each of the geographical areas, while also providing measures of uncertainty around the modelled estimates.
