NOTE: Before volume 6 (1983-1987), New Zealand rates were split into Maori and non-Maori populations.

  • *Rate is age-standardized to the world population, per 100,000 man-years.

  • Through volume 8, the United Kingdom, England (South) Thames data included only the South Thames regions, covering ∼6.8 million persons; in volume 9, this registry expanded to include the entire Thames region, expanding to >14 million persons.
