This article highlights national data on the number of newly diagnosed cases of childhood cancer (incidence) and the number of deaths attributed to cancer (mortality) in children under the age of 15. Incidence data are explored by age, sex and the five most commonly diagnosed groups of childhood cancer. Due to the low number of cancer cases, five years of data, between 2006 and 2010, were combined to report the most recent results.
