- Age-group specific survival estimates are presented for children aged 0 to 4, 5 to 9 and 10 to 14 years. Age-standardised survival estimates are also presented for all children.
- These data have been smoothed using the “lowess” technique (locally weighted scatter plot smoothing) because of the year-to-year variation in the survival estimates.
- The vertical axis of Figure 1 has been fixed between 65% and 90% to display the trends more clearly.
