Table 5 Marginal estimates of 5-year RS and LLE for all investigated settings and scenarios. Marginal point estimates (PE) of 5-year relative survival (RS) and loss in life expectancy (LLE), with lower (LCI) and upper (UCI) confidence intervals, standard errors (SE) and relative % precision (RP) from different methods, settings and scenarios for including uncertainty in the general population mortality when estimating SEs. For settings 1 and 1S general population mortality rates are stratified by age, sex and calendar year. For settings 2 and 2S general population mortality rates are stratified by age, sex, calendar year and region. RP illustrates comparison of the conventional method to a bootstrap-based method
