Cancer by county: new resource for etiologic clues.

Abstract

Mapping of U. S. cancer mortality by county has revealed patterns of etiologic significance. The patterns for bladder cancer in males point to industrial determinants: some are known (chemical manufacturing) but others (automobile and machinery manufacturing) represent new leads for epidemiologic study. By contrast, the geographic clusters of high rates of stomach cancer in both sexes are consistent with ethnic susceptibility.
