Smoking Related Mortality All Conditions - Males and Females
Data on Smoking Related Mortality for all conditions was sourced from the Office of National Statistics, England and Wales Public Health Mortality Dataset from 2006 to 2008 using ICD-10 Classification Codes. Only ICD-10 Codes for underlying cause of death attributable to smoking as specified by SAMMEC were included. For the full list of ICD-10 Codes used See http://www.nwph.info/sam/icd10codes.aspx. Smoking Attributable Mortality is calculated by multiplying deaths for each of the ICD codes by a Smoking Attributable Fraction (SAF) and applying a sex and age specific smoking prevalence rate (General Household 2005-2007) and a Relative Risk of mortality for current and ex smokers (American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study II (CPS II) as used in SAMMEC). Deaths from all smoking-attributable conditions (over 35, male/female) are presented as rate per 100,000 population (standardised to the European Standard Population). (NWPHO from Office for National Statistics Public Health Mortality File for 2006 to 2008 and mid-year population estimates for 2005 to 2007).
