Notes

The 2013 European Standard Population is modelled and published by Eurostat [1] for use in the production of age-standardised rates. It uses the unweighted average 2010-based population projections of the European Union (x27) and European Free Trade Association (x4) countries for the period 2011-2030 broken down into 5-year age bands from age 0 - age 95+ with the 0-5 age band separated into age 0 and age 1-4. The version provided with this package combines the age 0 and age 1-4 populations into a single 0-4 age band and combines the 90-94 and 95+ populations into a single 90+ age band, giving 19 age bands in total.
