Abstract

This small-area study of incidence of cancers of the brain and central nervous system found evidence of trend (P = 0.02) of cancer risk with deprivation (8% higher risk in affluent areas), but no significant association with urban-rural status. Results were not indicative of a strong geographically determined risk at small-area level.
