In 1955, 234 men and 116 women died from bladder cancer in the Netherlands.
In 1988 the numbers were 794 and 317 respectively.
After adjusting for the ageing of the Dutch population since 1955, female mortality rates per 105 person-years appear to be very stable: 2.9 from 1955 to 1959 and 3.0 from 1985 to 1988.
By contrast, an increasing trend exists in males.
From 1955 to 1959 and from 1985 to 1988, bladder cancer mortality rates per 1 105 person-years were 7.5 and 12.4 respectively.
For men in particular, increasing mortality (and incidence) rates are seen all over the world.
