Tables of incidence by registry
The rates given in the body of these tables are the average annual incidence by
sex, site and agegroup per 100 000 population, i.e. they have been averaged
over the number of years for which data are presented. The column headings are
defined below:
 SITE: A shortened version of the
full ICD10 title describes each site or site grouping.
 ALL AGES: The total number of
cases by site and for all sites.
 AGE UNK: The numbers of cases of
unknown age by site. They are included in the total numbers of cases and
in the calculation of the allages crude rate, for each site and for all sites,
but obviously do not appear in the agespecific rates. They are taken into
account in the computation of the world standardized and cumulative incidence
rates.
 0, 5...: The agegroups for
which incidence data are presented. These usually end with the agegroup 85+,
but population data are not available above age 70 or 75 for some registries
and in this case the incidence data finish at age 70+ or 75+.
 CRUDE RATE: The crude average
annual incidence rate, based on the total number of registrations, of known and
unknown ages, by site.
 %: The proportional frequency of
each site to the total of all sites excluding ICD10 C44 (other skin).
 CR64 and CR74: The sum over each
year of age of the agespecific incidence rates, taken from birth to age 64 and
from birth to age 74.
 ASR(W): The world
agestandardized incidence rate by site.
 ICD(10th): The ICD10 code(s)
corresponding to the site or group of sites given in the lefthand column.
Key to conventions and symbols used in the tables:
 Zero rate: a dash (–) means that
there are no cases registered.
 0.0 means an incidence rate less
than 0.05.
Populationatrisk
For populations with persons of unknown age, the numbers are shown below the lowest
agegroup in the pyramid. The percentages by age are computed over the total
(male and female) population.
