||Epidemiologic estimate of the proportion of fatalities related to occupational factors in Finland
||June 2001, Vol.27, No.3, p.161-213. Illus. 340 ref.
||This study attempts to estimate the proportion of annual deaths related to occupational factors in Finland. Statistics on causes of death, numbers of subjects exposed, and risk ratios obtained from the epidemiological literature were used. Sex-, age- and disease-specific numbers of deaths were provided by Statistics Finland for 1996. The fraction of work-related mortality was estimated to be 7% (10% for men and 2% for women). For the main cause-of-death categories, the attributable fractions were 12% for circulatory system diseases, 8% for malignant neoplasms, 4% for respiratory system diseases, 4% for mental disorders, 3% for nervous system diseases, and 3% for accidents and violence.
