Indicator notes
SDR, digestive diseases, 30-69 years, both sexes
Indicator code: mort.Dig30_69.T

Age-standardized overall premature mortality rate (from 30 to under 70 years, per 100000, both sexes) for diseases of the digestive system (ICD-10 codes K00 – K93).

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.

Data source: Civil registration with complete coverage and medical certification of cause of death.
