    In this example (column 3) relates to Part 1 Invitations and Outcomes column 3.

    Age Groups of women (first column)
  1. Outcome measures are assessed within three groups: the first being those within the previous target age range of 50-64, the second within the current target age range of 50-70 and the third, the total of those reported, regardless of age.

    Non-invasive or micro-invasive cancers (per 1,000 screened) (column 38)
  1. This column gives the cancers detected which are non-invasive, possibly micro-invasive, or definitely micro-invasive, per 1,000 screened calculated as:

    Non-invasive or possibly micro-invasive (column 27) plus Definitely micro-invasive (column 28) divided by Number screened (technically adequate) (column 3) multiplied by 1000 (for the appropriate age group).

    Benign biopsy rate (per 1,000 screened) (column 39)
  1. This column gives the women screened who have an open biopsy with a result of benign or normal per 1,000 screened, calculated as:

    Up to and including open biopsy: Result: benign/normal (columns 22 + 23) divided by Number screened (technically adequate) (column 3) multiplied by 1000 (for the appropriate age group).

    Part F2/6: Status of cancer
  1. Part F2/6 gives status and grades of cancers detected.

    Age Groups of women (first column) in Part F2/6.
  1. The status of cancers are assessed within three groups: the first being those within the previous target age range of 50-64, the second within the current target age range of 50-70 and the third, the total of those reported, regardless of age.

    Age Group (50-64) (line 43)
  1. This is the outcome measure for women in the previous target age group 50-64

    Age Group (50-70) (line 44)
  1. This is the outcome measure for women in the current target age group 50-70

    Total all ages (line 45)
  1. This is the outcome measure for all women reported, regardless of age.
