Standard Populations

Rates are per 100,000 population and are age-adjusted by five-year age groups to the 2000 U.S. standard population based on single years of age (Ries, et al. 2005), the 1996 Canadian standard population (Statistics Canada, 2003), the 1991 Canadian standard population, and to the World standard population (Parkin, et al., 2002). The age distributions of the four standard populations are as follows:
