Title A Swedish cancer-environment register available for research
Bibliographic information Mar. 1981, Vol.7, No.1, p.64-67. 4 ref.
Abstract The information in the Swedish Cancer Register has been improved by merging information from the 1960 census on occupation, main occupation during the year, economic activity, type of activity, occupational status, gainful employment, domicile, place of work, country of birth and higher education. This register is available to interested scientists in all countries. It can be used in epidemiologic studies on the relationship of occupation, and other factors, to the incidence of different types of cancer.
