Abstract
Cancer risks were assessed among cosmetologists (SIC-7231). A cohort was identified among cosmetologists in Connecticut who were licensed for 5 years or longer and who enrolled in hairdressing school before January 1, 1966. After exclusion of those for whom birth dates were not available, the number of subjects was 13,681. Follow up was successful for 11,214 of these subjects and data was correlated with information in the cancer tumor registry (CTR). Primary malignant tumors were found for 837 subjects. Among 3,315 subjects with missing birth dates who were generally older, there was a yield of 492 primary tumors, with 345 found in the remaining 10,366 subjects. Mortality data was collected on all deceased cases found, and data and age of death, and cause of death were available for 970 decedent cosmetologists. The author concludes that the data collection phase for the cosmetology study is complete.
