Demographers have developed models of the population-level burden of disease which typically include: a) intensity of incurring the disease; b) survival in sub-groups living with and without the disease; and c) intensities of dying from the disease and from other causes in these sub-groups. This approach allows assessing the importance of cancer as a part of the general population dynamics.. In particular, one can assess the amounts of time spent with and without cancer in the overall life expectancy (the total lifetime lived by the life table cohort).
