||The medical and epidemiological literature were surveyed and the methods for assessing genetic and occupational risks in the study were identified and critiqued. 5 major methodological approaches were identified: adjustment for race, ethnicity, and sex; case studies of occupational disease in genetically susceptible workers; cross-sectional evaluations of the prevalence of disease among genetically differentiated groups; case-control studies of the association of genetic characteristics and disease; and family studies of disease aggregations. These approaches, in part, allow for controlling genetic factors or identifying susceptible genes or phenotype markers that may differentiate occupational populations according to risk.
