We evaluated the secular mortality trend of prostate cancer in Taiwan from 1964 through 1994.
Analyses were based on vital statistics.
Relative risks associated with each of the age, period and cohort effects on secular mortality were estimated from a log-linear Poisson model.
Age adjusted mortality rates increased more than 2-fold during the last 30 years in Taiwan.
Age-period-cohort analysis showed that the age effect was the strongest.
Factors related to aging are the main reason for the increase in prostate cancer mortality in Taiwan during the last 3 decades.
