  1. 1Age standardized mortality rate, per 100000 person years; 2Rate difference; 3Population attributable fraction; 4Number of deaths attributable to differences in education, computed as the product of PAF by MR; 5relative index of inequality; 6comparison of the RII for the two periods; 7UADT = upper aerodigestive tract (lip, oral cavity, pharynx and larynx); 8All RR by educational level could not be computed due to too few deaths, therefore no estimation is available.
  2. ICD codes: total cancer (140–239 in ICD-9; C00-D47 in ICD-10), and the following cancer sites: UADT (140–149, 161; C00-14, C32), oesophagus (150; C15), stomach (151; C16), colorectal (153–154; C18-C21), liver (155; C22), pancreas (157; C25), lung (162; C33-34), breast (174; C50), uterus (179–180, 182; C53-C55), ovary (183; C56), kidney (189; C64-C66, C68), bladder (188;C67), brain and central nervous system (191–192; C70-C72), lymphatic and haemaopoietic tissue (200–208; C81-C96), and other cancers (the rest of 140–239; the rest of C00-D47).
