Source of the number of stomach cancer deaths: “Vital Statistics”.
Average age of death: Calculated according to the number of deaths, sex and age (5 years old age-grade), cause of death in “Vital Statistics”.
Source of crude morbidity rate and crude mortality rate:Center for Cancer Control and Information Services, National Cancer Center, Japan.
Fatality rate:We calculated by dividing the crude mortality rate by crude morbidity rate.
