Indicator code: mort.NCD30_69.T
Age-standardized overall premature mortality rate (from 30 to under 70 years, per 100000, both sexes) for four major noncommunicable diseases: * Cardiovascular diseases (ICD-10a codes I00 – I99), * Cancer (ICD-10 codes C00 – C97), * Diabetes mellitus (ICD-10 codes E10 – E14) and * Chronic respiratory diseases (ICD-10 codes J40 – J47).
The age-standardized mortality rate is a weighted average of the age-specific mortality rates per 100000 people, where the weights are the proportions of people in the corresponding age groups of the WHO standard population. The age-standardized mortality rate is calculated using the direct method: it represents what the crude rate would have been if the population had the same age distribution as the standard European population.
