Abstract
A death certificate based occupational health surveillance program was instituted for Pennsylvania for the purpose of identifying possible relationships between adverse health effects and the usual work experience in order to promote the investigation and abatement of occupationally related disease. This particular report focused on deaths from specific malignant neoplasms (MN) for the occupational group of elementary and secondary schoolteachers. The study indicated an increased rate of death occurring among white males in this profession caused by MN of the bone, connective tissue and skin, genitourinary organs, lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue; among white women by MN of the nervous system, breast, lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue, and genitourinary organs; and among black females for MN of lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue. The sources of data in the Pennsylvania study were from the State Health Data Center computerized 1983 and 1984 mortality files. The comparison of the results from the analysis of separate years of data yielded only one significantly elevated Proportional Mortality Ratio common to both individual years, breast cancer.
