||The number of deaths from chronic interstitial pneumonia has increased in the past decade. This study combines statistics from the National Census of 1970 and the Causes of Death Register 1971-1980, and covered only men from 20-64yrs of age in 1970. Mortality due to this disorder was higher in unemployed than employed men, except in the case of bakers, where mortality was also higher. This group of workers should be studied further to determine whether exposure to flour and other organic dusts is causally related to the development of chronic respiratory disease.
