Abstract
The relationship between parental occupation and birth defects in offspring was investigated. Data on infant malformation was obtained from the Metropolitan Atlanta Congenital Defects Surveillance Program, and Maternal Occupation was determined from personal interviews and Bureau of Census classifications. The study population included 989 women from Atlanta selected on the basis of their infant's defect. A significant number of mothers of children with cleft lip were nurses. Children with omphalocele and gastrochisis were more frequently born to female craftsworkers. The authors note that these results should be considered tentative due to the small study sample.
