Quality table (Survival)

Quality tables for survival show in and exclusions from the survival calculations by entity, country and sex for the 10 time periods that survival is shown for.
Exclusions are:
  1. Age at diagnosis 90 years or older
  2. Patients identified from death certificate only (DCO) or from autopsy alone - we do not know when the cancer started.
  3. Negative follow-up cannot be handled, can be due to emigration before diagnosis
  4. Only one cancer with the same date of diagnosis within an entity is included
  5. Not shown in NORDCAN - Subgroups of lip, oral cavity and pharynx and of leukaemia are not shown before year 1978 and some groups are too small to calculate survival (at least 25 cases unless collapsible with other time periods).
