Standardized across groups, in order to allow for comparison across groups. For example, prevalence or rate of an area may be adjusted by age and sex so as to provide an estimate of what an area's prevalence or rate might have been if that area's age and sex distribution was the same as that for the province overall. This adjustment removes the effects of demographic differences.
