Tables of incidence by registry

The rates given in the body of these tables are the average annual incidence by sex, site and age-group 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 ICD-10 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 all-ages crude rate, for each site and for all sites, but obviously do not appear in the age-specific rates. They are taken into account in the computation of the world standardized and cumulative incidence rates.

  •  0-, 5-...: The age-groups for which incidence data are presented. These usually end with the age-group 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 ICD-10 C44 (other skin).

  •  CR64 and CR74: The sum over each year of age of the age-specific incidence rates, taken from birth to age 64 and from birth to age 74.

  •  ASR(W): The world age-standardized incidence rate by site.

  •  ICD(10th): The ICD-10 code(s) corresponding to the site or group of sites given in the left-hand 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.


For populations with persons of unknown age, the numbers are shown below the lowest age-group in the pyramid. The percentages by age are computed over the total (male and female) population.
