Age-group specific survival estimates are presented for children aged 0 to 4 years, 5 to 9 years and 10 to 14 years. Age-standardised survival estimates are also presented for all children.
Interpretation should be focused on overall trends, rather than the survival estimates for any particular year. This is because the number of children diagnosed each year is relatively small and the survival estimates for single calendar years are therefore less stable.
