Methods: Incidence rate, prevalence, and age-specific rate (ASR) for skin and STS were determined.
I estimated age-specific rate ratios (RR) by fitting a saturated conditional complementary log-log3 to the data in Table 3 and found that CC+CLA was protective among women 13-19 (RR = 0.61, 95% CI: 0.41- 0.90), but harmful in women 19-34 (RR = 1.74, 95% CI: 1.21- 2.50) and 35-45 years old (RR = 4.98, 95% CI = 1.74-14.30).
In contrast, the 15 to 29 age group was the only group to have a decrease in the age-specific rate in 2013.
Pancreatic cancer is clearly the most common and its age-specific rate rises rapidly in all age groups.
For females, mortality rates were assumed to decline in line with the age-specific rate of decline observed over the period 1961-66 up to age 80 years, with no improvements at later ages.
The age-specific rate of hospitalization days was higher in the older age groups than in the younger ones, and the rate was significantly higher in men than in women in all age group (P[less than]0.001).
The age-specific rate ratios (RRs) are defined as the exponentiated difference between the logarithm of the age-specific HMRs and the logarithm of the national age-adjusted HMR estimated by the model.
Repeating the modeling separately for each age group led to a median difference of 0.5 deaths/100,000 population between the age-specific rate differences using this method and our original method.
The highest age-specific rate in the occurrence of new COPD cases was found among men at the age of 82 years (8.09 new cases per 1000 population/year).
Unless the age-specific rate is decreased, successive cohorts will be expected to contribute a larger number of murders in the coming years.
For mothers aged 25-29 years, the total effect also contributed to the overall preterm birth rate decline because the age-specific rate component was greater than the age distribution component.
As reported previously (1), the highest age-specific rate continues to be among persons aged 18-24 years, many of whom were college students.
