Table 3 Multiplication factors* and 95% confidence intervals for selected causes of death comparing calendar years after 19952007 with years 19911994 in Switzerland Ϯ

From: Impact of unlinked deaths and coding changes on mortality trends in the Swiss National Cohort

Cause of death Age group
75-84 85+
Females   
All cancer 0.971 (0.931 - 1.012) 0.888 (0.850 - 0.929)
Breast 0.987 (0.896 - 1.087) 0.792 (0.716 - 0.877)
Suicide 0.975 (0.745 - 1.277) 1.422 (1.025 - 1.972)
Males   
All cancer 0.891 (0.859 - 0.925) 0.893 (0.854 - 0.933)
Prostate 0.798 (0.731 - 0.871) 0.843 (0.767 - 0.926)
Suicide 1.026 (0.849 - 1.240) 1.093 (0.869 - 1.375)
  1. * Derived from Poisson regression.
  2. Ϯ Reading example: The multiplication factor of 0.792 for breast cancer in the 85+ old women means that the rate calculated in the year 1994 would need to be multiplied by 0.792 to be comparable to rate calculated in 1995.
