Cross-classification variables are items 1-6.
Summary variables are items 7-48.


Note:  This table includes survivors with DS86 shielded kerma
estimates greater than 4 Gy. The analyses in Thompson et. al.
[Radiation Research 137 Supplement:17-67, 1994] were conducted
after exclusion of people with DS86 shielded kerma in excess
of 4 Gy. Records in this data for these people have a shielded
kerma indicator value (Columns 26-30) of 2. Age at exposure
and dose categories were defined to include all values greater
than or equal to the lower bound and less than the upper bound.
Adjusted person-years, which are migration adjusted person years,
should be used to obtain the proper analyses.

     For each cell in the table, gamma and neutron organ dose
adjustment factors from colon dose are given for each of
the fifteen organs incorporated into the DS86 system. The
table is cross-classified by city and age as well. The age
groups chosen reflect the use of three different phantoms in
the DS86 system; choice of the appropriate phantom was based
upon age of the individual at the time of exposure.
     The analyses for the Radiation Research solid cancer
incidence paper were carried out using tables constructed
directly from DS86 organ dose estimates and did not rely on
these approximations. As a result of this, parameter
estimates using these approximated values will differ slightly
from these in the solid cancer incidence paper.
