|Title:||Comparison of methods for calculating relative survival in population-based studies.|
|Citation:||CANCER EPIDEMIOL, 2012, 36 (1), pp. 16-21|
|Abstract:||It is vital that unbiased estimates of relative survival are estimated and reported by cancer registries. A single figure of relative survival is often required to make reporting simpler. This can be obtained by pooling all ages or, more commonly, by using age-standardisation. The various methods for providing a single figure estimate of relative survival can give very different estimates.|
