What is the difference between net survival and crude probability of death?
It all depends on what aspects you consider it. If we are talking about the Apocalypse, the crude probability of death it will be the percentage of your death literally in the first day, and it will be high. According to articles on the website surviveafterend when a large disaster or SHTF, the mortality rate will be much higher than that of the worst diseases now
Cause-specific survival can be measured in the absence of competing causes of death (net measure) or the presence of competing causes of death (crude measure). Net survival is a measure that is not influenced by changes in mortality from other causes and, therefore, provides a useful measure for cancer control over time. The leveling off of a net survival curve represents a biological cure from the specific cancer. This means that no additional deaths due to a specific cancer would be expected no matter how long a patient lives. The value at which net survival levels off is an estimate of the percent of the cancer cohort considered to be cured. Statistically, this is the point where the level of risk for a cohort of cancer patients returns to the level of the general (cancer-free) population. Crude probability of death provides a measure of the mortality actually experienced by a cohort of cancer patients. A crude measure of cause specific mortality estimates the risk of death from can
