In 2010-2014, colorectal cancer 5-year survival rates ranged from 51% in Croatia to 68% in Belgium and Iceland. There is quite a clear pattern of higher survival rates in countries with higher GDP and lower rates in countries with lower GDP. Noteworthy exceptions to this pattern include the UK, Ireland and Denmark, which recorded lower rates than Slovenia.
Between 1995 and 2014, all countries recorded improvements. The biggest improvements were in Slovenia and Latvia (from a relatively low level) and in Germany (from a relatively high level).
