  1. Incidence and mortality rate are defined as the age-standardized incidence or mortality per 100,000 people per year. Incidence, mortality, Mortality-to-incidence (M/I) ratio and 5-year prevalence proportion were obtained from Globocan 2012. Population, population density and life expectancy at birth were obtained from the World Bank data from 2012 (The World Bank 2014b)
