Rates by age and gender

  • Some X axes have been truncated to accommodate the data.
  • These rates are age and sex standardized.
  • Age-sex standardized rates are based on 2001 census data.
  • Estimates of mortality for the last 2 years may be underestimated due to delay in reporting.
  • Significance was determined via a hypothesis test for the slope of the regression line, which tests for a linear relationship between rate and year.
