Survival Rates

The relative 5-year survival rates in western Germany are 38.9% (west) and 26.5% (east) for males and 50.4% (west) and 44.8% (east) for females. Thus, the survival rate is consistently better for females than for males in both parts of the country, and the survival rates for both sexes in eastern Germany are substantially lower than in the west.
