Directly age standardised mortality rate from breast cancer for females in the respective time period per 100,000 registered female patients.

The following indicator includes a change of methodology for the pooled years directly standardised rate. Full details of these changes can be found via the resource links below.

A correction was made to the 2016 data for this indicator on the 28th September 2018 due to errors found in the data.

The errors were due to the numerator and denominator using different CCG configurations and only affected the CCGs subject to boundary changes on 1st April 2017. The CCGs affected were NHS Birmingham South and Central CCG (04X), NHS Morecambe Bay CCG (01K), NHS North Cumbria CCG (01H), NHS Norwich CCG (06W), NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG (05L), and NHS South Norfolk CCG (06Y). The numerator source data for reporting period 2016 implemented the 2017 boundary changes early, whereas the corresponding denominator data was calculated according to the CCG configurations at the time of the reporting period. Indicators have been recalculated so the denominator uses CCG configurations as of the 1st April 2017.

The errors affected the 2016 data for the following indicators: 1.2 Under 75 mortality from cardiovascular disease, 1.6 Under 75 mortality from respiratory disease, 1.7 Under 75 mortality from liver disease, 1.9 Under 75 mortality from cancer, 1.20 Mortality from breast cancer in females.

No other indicators have been affected.
