||Methods of assessing smoking effects in occupational cohort studies

||This paper describes methods for the interpretation of the results of epidemiologic studies carried out in cohorts of workers aimed at assessing possible lung cancer risks related to occupational exposures. One such method, usable when a statistically significant lung cancer excess appears in a cohort study, enables the tobacco-attributable excess to be evaluated and, therefore, the occupational risk to be calculated. The theoretical model, as well as the practical applications, suggest that a possible tobacco overconsumption in the study cohort is unlikely to account entirely for a lung cancer excess higher than 1.50.
