Indicator notes
SDR, selected smoking-related causes, per 100 000
Indicator code: E991722.T

SDR is the age-standardized death rate calculated using the direct method, i.e. represents what the crude rate would have been if the population had the same age distribution as the standard European population.

The mortality from combined, selected causes of death which are known from literature to be related to smoking. It has to be pointed out that it is relatively rough indicator and it is NOT the estimate of tobacco-attributable mortality, which is more complex and difficult to calculate.

This simple pooling of smoking related deaths (irrespective of what is the actual proportion of deaths due to tobacco in each cause) can help to better rank countries by smoking related mortality and can be used to better track trends in deaths associated with tobacco than would be possibly by using separate causes.

Includes: Cancers of mouth and pharynx, larynx, traxea, bronchus, lung and oesophagus; Ischaemic heart disease; Cerebrovascular diseases; Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
