Figure 7

Sensitivity to knot configuration. Comparison of the predicted component-specific excess mortality rates (per 1,000 person-years) from models with varying number and location of the knots for the restricted cubic splines that represent the baseline excess mortality functions and time-dependent effects of age at diagnosis and calendar period.
