Age-specific survival estimates are presented for children aged 0 to 4, 5 to 9 and 10 to 14 years.
The vertical axis of Figure 3 has been fixed between 65% and 90% to display the trends more clearly.
Interpretation should be focused on overall trends, rather than the survival estimates for any particular year. This is because the number of children diagnosed each year is relatively small and the survival estimates for single calendar years are therefore less stable.
