CANCER MORTALITY NEAR CHEMICAL PLANT.

Research output: ResearchChapter

Abstract

The current pilot project tests the feasibility of determining the carcinogenic effects of arsenic by examining the mortality of populations living near an insecticide-producing industry. Cancer death rates in populations from census tracts near the plant are compared to all the tracts in the city which match on several variables. The advantage of using this matching study design is that data from several projects with similar designs might be combined despite differences in the characteristics of the populations exposed to the arsenic in various cities.
