About the National Data

Data

Baseline: 11.1 cirrhosis deaths per 100,000 population occurred in 2018 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)

Target: 10.9 cirrhosis deaths per 100,000 population

Numerator
Number of deaths due to cirrhosis (ICD-10 codes: K70, K73-K74).
Denominator
Number of persons.
Target-setting method

Minimal statistical significance

Target-setting method details
Minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective, but it was not possible to project a target because the trend was moving away from the desired direction. The standard error was used to calculate a target based on minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline. This method was used because a minimal statistically significant improvement was expected and other targets were not statistically different from the baseline or were too ambitious.
