||This study is a linkage of the 1960 National Census of Sweden and the Causes of Death Register from 1961-1970 in order to investigate the correlation between occupation and death due to pulmonary emphysema. The study only comprised men born 1901-1920, and smoking habits in different occupational groups were taken into account. Self-employed persons and supervisors in farming, forestry and market gardening had the highest incidence of deaths due to pulmonary emphysema. This excess risk is significant, even after the performed number of comparisons is taken into account. A significant correlation was found between estimated exposure to air pollutants and mortality due to emphysema in men born 1911-1920.
