Title: U.S. Cancer Mortality Rates and Trends 1950-...
Publisher: Two Sixty Press
Book Condition: New
Book Type: Paperback
Paperback. 828 pages. Dimensions: 11.0in. x 8.3in. x 1.6in.Originally published by the NCIEPA Interagency Agreement on Environmental Carcinogenesis in September, 1983, this series of books included a detailed list of rates for major cancers for every county in the United States covering the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The basic information had been obtained from the state cancer registries and then compiled by researchers at the National Cancer Institute. Interestingly, the series had a very short lifespan; by the mid-1990s the US Government Printing Office was no longer publishing the book. By 2000 the series had become almost impossible to find anywhere. The data has a heavy computer quality about it--the values were printed using a Courier typeface, and instead of zeroes denoting zero rate (no cancers) there is only blank space. Additionally, counties showing no cancers for the three-decade time period simply dont show up on the list at all. On the positive side, the information found in this series is far more precise than even the NCIs recent 2000 Cancer Atlas. Mason and his colleagues listed cancer rates by decades while the NCIs 2000 effort includes only two categories: 1950-69 and 1970-94. Additionally the 1983 Rates and Trends includes columns showing percentage increase or decrease through the decades. Anyone wishing to study the possible relationship between cancer and any environmental agent should consider Masons Rates and Trends series.
