City A crude rate for prostate cancer = Number of cases in 2010/total number of population(male)
= 0.0065 per 100,000 male
Similarly for City B = 3580/100,000 = 0.0358 per 100,000 male
Age-specific incidence rates
= (number of cases/number of population(male) for same age group ) X 100,000
Thus for city A the 0-44 age incidence rate = (50/500,000) X 100,000 = 10 per 100,000
45-64 = (250/75 000) X 100,000 = 333 per 100,00
65+ = (350/25,000) X 100,000 = 1400 per 100,00
For city B, 0-44 years = (80/1,500,000) X 100,000= 5.33 per 100,000 male
45-64 years = (1000/600,000) X 100,000 = 166.67 per 100,000 male
65+ years = (2500/400000) X 100,000= 625 per 100,000 male
