Título Silicosis mortality among young adults in the United States, 1968-2004
Información bibliográfica Aug. 2008, Vol.51, No.8, p.568-578. Illus. 59 ref.
Resumen To describe deaths among young adults (aged 15-44) with silicosis in the United States from 1968 to 2004, this study analysed the National Center for Health Statistics multiple cause-of-death records. Compared with decedents aged ≥45 years, young decedents were more likely to have silicosis listed as the underlying cause of death, to be female and black. Twenty-nine young silicosis decedents had industry and occupation information available. Occupations in construction and manufacturing industries were associated with significantly elevated proportionate mortality ratios for young silicosis deaths. Because these deaths are likely to reflect more intense and recent exposures, the follow-back investigations into the work sites where these individuals were exposed to silica should be conducted.
