  1. AAPC Average Annual Percent Change, APC Annual Percent Change, CI Confidence Interval
  2. aFor the total population, trends have been assessed with age-adjusted rates and standard errors
  3. bFor each age group trends have been assessed with crude mortality rates by taking the number of deaths and population data assuming a Poisson model distribution
