For both males and females, the probability of non-cancer deaths was higher among older patients, those diagnosed with localized cancers and where cancer survival was higher.

Small-area variation in breast screening invitation response rates exists for Greater Sydney and is strongly related to sociodemographic factors that, together with screening location features, could inform targeted attempts to improve invitation response rates.
