Abstract
Cancer mortality rates among workers at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (SIC-3731) in Kittery, Maine, were surveyed. Vital status was determined as of 1980 for a total of 24,545 workers employed at any time since 1952. The workers were grouped according to radiation exposure. Deaths from all causes were below expected rates, even when latency and duration of employment were considered. No excess death rates from cancer were found. The authors note that the negative results in this study may be due an insufficient latency period between the workers' exposure and the mortality determinations.
