Table of Weights for Age-Adjustment to U.S. 2000 Age Standard

The age-adjusted rate may be considered an average across the age-specific rates, but rather than being a simple average, it is a weighted average with each age-specific rate weighted by the proportion of people in that age group in the U.S. 2000 standard population.
