Cancer - deaths aged 45-74 years
- Inequalities are increasing both in absolute and relative terms over time.
Between 1997 and 2009, there has been a 17.2% decrease in rates of death from cancer amongst those aged 45-74 years as a whole. In 2009 around 7,500 people aged 45-74 died from cancer. Cancer deaths in this age group are more common in deprived areas (586 per 100,000 population) than in areas of low deprivation (238 per 100,000 population) - a difference of 348. Although figures fluctuate from year to year there has been an overall increase in inequalities in both absolute and relative terms since 1997.
