||Occupational bladder cancer mortality among racial and ethnic minorities in 21 States

||Occupational bladder cancer mortality among minority racial and ethnic groups is not well documented in the United States. Race, ethnicity and sex-specific bladder cancer mortality (1985-1992) of workers employed in 21 states was examined. Mortality of specific racial-ethnic occupational groups was compared separately with workers in the specific occupation and with members of the specific racial/ethnic group. This study identified elevated bladder cancer mortality among African American males and females and Hispanic males in several occupational groups with exposure to suspected bladder carcinogens as well as among Asian males in sales (PMR = 2.13) and Asian females in the precision production sector (PMR = 5.25).
