Abstract
Collaborative Perinatal Project (CPP) data was investigated using log linear model analysis to establish the CPP data base's usefulness for examination of occupational hazard exposures' reproductive effects. Hazardous working condition exposure up to and in some cases during the pregnancy was reported by 4575 of the 23,961 women studied, who totaled 43% of the CPP population. Occupational pesticide exposure produced the most adverse reproductive history, as measured by fetal deaths and stillbirths, premature low birth weight babies with low 5 minute Apgar scores, suspected neurological abnormalities at 1 year, and low intelligence quotient at 4 years. No significant interaction with demographic variables was found. Occupational chemical, heat, and heavy lifting exposures were also associated with adverse reproductive experience. Ionizing radiation and animal exposure did not have comparable effects. Further data analysis from the remaining CPP population is recommended.
