Peptic ulcer (PU) disease is the cause of substantia morbidity and mortality in a number of countries including Australia.
Despite diagnostic and treatment advances, sustained mortality from PU disease has been reported.
To understand this problem a birth cohort analysis using the Median Polish Technique (MPT) was performed on 36 years of mortality data from New South Wales, Australia.
The MPT allows cohort effects to be quantified, yet has rarely been applied to mortality data.
Birth cohort effects detected using graphical presentation of mortality data for duodenal (DU) and gastric ulcer (GU) mortality data for both males and females, were supported by the results obtained using the MPT.
The DU mortality rates for females increased significantly over the 36-year period.
