Trends in mortality from diseases of the circulatory system and cancer by site in Antwerp, Belgium 1900-1975

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Although the crude death rates of the most important causes of death show an increase until 1964, after age-adjustment it is possible to divide these in two groups. The first group shows after age-adjustment a decreasing trend suggesting crude mortality increases appear mostly in the oldest age-groups. The second group consists of mortality causes which after age-adjustment continue to increase. The evolution of the total cancer mortality shows that until 1940, it was dominated by the first group, while after 1950 a switch to the second group can be noticed.
