Abstract
Results of a study of 3726 Appalachian coal miners concerning mortality from lung cancer reveals low standard mortality ratio for the disorder. Data are reported for the distribution of selected underlying causes of death among coal miners, age distributions of lung cancer deaths and all deaths in the United States, the distribution of observed deaths versus expected deaths from lung cancer, and the distribution of cigarette smokers among miners by number smoked and pack years. The results agree with previously published British data but disagree with recent American data.
