(1) Age-standardised mortality rates per 100,000 population, standardised to the European Standard Population. Age-standardised rates are used to allow comparison between populations which may contain different proportions of people of different ages.
(2) Confidence intervals (CIs) are a measure of the statistical precision of an estimate and show the range of uncertainty around the estimated figure. Calculations based on small numbers of events are often subject to random fluctuations. As a general rule, if the confidence interval around one figure overlaps with the interval around another, we cannot say with certainty that there is more than a chance difference between the two figures.
(3) Cause of death for prostate cancer was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes C18-C20.
(4) Based on boundaries as of 2008.
(5) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
