What is the world age-standardised rate (WASR)?

This is the rate that would have been found if the population of Ireland had the same age-composition (proportion of total population in each five year age class) as a hypothetical world-wide population.

The rates are calculated by applying the age-specific rates for the location being studied to a theoretical world-wide standard population, usually expressed per 100,000 persons per year.
