Abstract
An evaluation was undertaken of the occupational mortality experience of 14 states in the United States for the purpose of identifying occupational groups which appeared to be at excessive risk for cause specific mortality. A significant excess of proportionate mortality was noted for several not easily studied occupations. Significantly increased proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs) were observed for several occupations and evaluated in comparison with previously reported surveillance studies. These associations included excessive leukemia mortality among communications workers; intestinal and bladder cancer in dry cleaning workers; acute myocardial infarction in textile workers; other forms of heart disease in textile workers; other forms of heart disease in textile and apparel mill workers; rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in teachers, salesmen, and homemakers; cancer of the larynx in printing machine operators; kidney cancer in machinists; and work related electrocutions.
