Canada: Cause-Specific Mortality Among Workers 1965 to 1991 (CD-ROM)
This first Canada-wide publication of mortality risks will help identify occupational groups across Canada with excessive mortality due to specific causes. It will also help detect previously unsuspected associations between illness (e.g., cancer) and occupation and it will be a powerful tool for both generating and testing hypotheses. The CD-ROM contains the results of a longitudinal follow-up of a sample of 700,000 men and women who were in the Canadian work force for at least one year during the period 1965 to 1971. The results are linked to the Canadian Mortality Database for the years 1965 to 1971. The CD-ROM will be of interest to professionals in public health, workers compensation and safety boards, ministries of health and labour, regulatory agencies, corporations, unions, personnel and medical departments.
System requirements: IBM PC compatible 486 or greater, 8MB RAM, CD-ROM reader, minimum 8MB hard disk space, Windows 95 or greater.
