From: Assessing survival in widowers, and controls -A nationwide, six- to nine-year follow-up

Years after death of spouse Number of widowers alive at the beginning of the interval Crude survival Relative survival Lower 95% CI for relative survival Upper 95% CI for relative survival

  1. Crude survival and number at risk in the beginning of time interval is also shown. The Finnish program SURV3 (Windows Software for Relative Survival) was used for calculating relative survival
  2. No statistical significance
