  1. aThe expected remaining lifetime of Japanese dialysis patients at each age was excerpted every 5 years
  2. bJU-R = (expected remaining lifetime of dialysis patients in Japan) ÷ (expected remaining lifetime of dialysis patients in the US)
  3. cJE-R = (expected remaining lifetime of dialysis patients in Japan) ÷ (expected remaining lifetime of dialysis patients in Europe)
