The Macmillan-NCIN Work Plan:

Segmenting the Cancer Population Project

The Macmillan-NCIN Segmentation Project aims to break down, or ‘segment’, information on the UK cancer survivor population so that there is a more granular understanding of them.

    • As part of the Macmillan-NCIN Segmentation project, we have released new analyses on older people living with and beyond cancer in the UK: "130,000 people diagnosed at 65 or over survive cancer for at least a decade".
  • PRESS RELEASE - Childhood cancer survivorship in the UK

    • The Macmillan-NCIN Partnership has released new figures for the number of children currently living with cancer in the UK: "10,000 UK children living with cancer".
  • DATA - Interactive Excel spreadsheet download here - Segmenting the cancer survivorship population in the UK

    • 20-year prevalence for the period 1991-2010 in the UK.
    • All cancers combined (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
    • For the UK and all constituent countries - England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
    • By time since diagnosis, age and sex for the UK and England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
    • By Strategic Clinical Network and deprivation quintile for England.
  • IOSC 3RD ANNUAL REPORT - 'Improving outcomes: a strategy for cancer 3rd annual report'

    •  Appendix B comprises of data from the Macmillan-NCIN Segmentation Project.

Overview of the Segmentation Project

The Macmillan-NCIN Segmentation Project aims to break down, or ‘segment’, information on the UK cancer survivor population so that there is a more granular understanding of them. 

As one of the initial stages to this work, we have produced a spreadsheet with guidance, which provides cancer prevalence data for people diagnosed with cancer over a 20-year period (1991-2010 for England, Scotland and Wales and 1993-2010 for NI).  The information provided is for all malignant cancers combined by: time since diagnosis, age, sex, UK, UK constituent country, Strategic Clinical Networks (England only) and deprivation (England only).
