Abstract

The age and sex related trends in incidence of malignant mesothelioma and trends in notification of mesothelioma to the Labour Inspection between 1960-88 are investigated. For men, the age-adjusted incidence rate increased from 0.4 per 100,000 in the period 1960-69 to 1.4 per 100,000 in the period 1980-88. The number of mesotheliomas notified to the Labour Inspection increased from only 4 in the period 1960-69 to 165 in the period 1980-88. The incidence rate among women was unchanged, about 0.1 per 100,000.
