description:
A previous publication for the province of British Columbia (Occupational mortality in British Columbia 1950-1978) was published in 1986 as Statistics Canada catalogueno. 84-544 (ISBN 0-660-59382-32872-X).This new publication helps identify occupational groups across Canada with excessive mortality due to specific causes. It also provides a Canadian monitoring system to detect previously unsuspected ass ociations between, for example, cancer and occupationand provide a powerful tool for both generating and testing hypotheses. The publication presents the results of a longitudinal follow-up of the 10% Canadian Occupational Cohort, a sample of 700,000 individuals, both women and men, in the Canadian workforce during the period 1965-71, linked to the Canadian Mortality DataBase (CMDB) for 1965-1991.
