Presents a study that examined the long-term mortality experience of a cohort of male chemical production workers exposed to substantial levels of dioxin in Great Britain. Differences in mortality rates among cumulative exposure categories; Characteristics that contribute to the importance of the cohort; Analysis of cancer deaths at expected levels for the entire cohort.

    Cancer survival in England and Wales has improved over the last 30 years. However, cohort survival estimates delay recognition of these improvements. Here we show that period survival estimates, based on survival in a recent time period, suggest a more optimistic pattern for England and Wales...
