Life Span Study Cancer Incidence Data, 1958-1987

The data include detailed tabulations and documentation of the data used in the analyses of LSS cancer incidence for the period from 1958-1987 for solid cancer and 1950-1987 for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Leukemia data are tabulated based on bone-marrow dose. Solid cancer data are tabulated based on dose to the colon; to assist in carrying out analyses based on doses to other organs, a table of city and age-at-exposure specific organ dose adjustments is included.

The basic data and documentation are bundled as a single compressed file. Highlighted document files may be viewed by clicking on them. When you are ready to proceed to downloading the files, select the preferred compression format and click the "Registration" box below.
