||This document presents maps showing geographic distribution (by health service area) of mortality associated with selected respiratory conditions that together represent nearly all respiratory diseases. For categories of traditional occupational lung diseases mapped in this atlas (i.e. pneumoconioses, including coal workers' pneumoconiosis, asbestosis, silicosis, byssinosis, and other and unspecified pneumoconioses), nearly all cases are attributable to hazardous exposure. For other respiratory disease categories, cases frequently occur in the absence of hazardous occupational exposure, with a small proportion of cases attributable, for some diseases, to occupational exposure. Nevertheless, occupational causes have been documented for each of the disease categories.
