Presented as a number per 100,000 men, age standardised, by Statistical Area Level 4.
Analysis by Statistical Area Level 4 (SA4) is based on postcode of usual residence of the patient. Postcode is based on the patient's postcode on their Medicare enrolment at the last processed MBS record (of any type) during 2013–14 (financial year of processing).
SA4s where the total population was less than 2,500 or where the population of men aged 40 years and over was less than 200 are excluded.
Suppression protocol for calculating age standardised rates:
100,000 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator), age standardised
