Definition:

Adjusted rates are crude rate values that are statistically adjusted to control for different age and sex distributions among groups (e.g.: across health regions, community areas, income quintiles, community areas, or Resource Utilization Bands (RUBs)) to ensure that the rates for all groups (and over time) can be fairly compared. The adjusted values are those that the group would have had if their age and sex distribution was the same as for a standard population, which is usually the Manitoba population. Statistical models are used to calculate these rates, and to compare a given group's rate and the provincial rate, as well as to compare rates over time within the group. Also called Rate Adjustment, Rate Standardization or Standardized Rates.
