A distinguished group of cancer epidemiologists thoroughly analyze cancer mortality in the United States in 1959 to 1961, in relation to 68 tumor sites, by using many governmental resources. For interested teachers, researchers, and clinicians, this surprisingly concise text is the most definitive study yet of the dimensions of the human cancer problem in this country. Mortality rates from these individual tumor sites are well summarized, and age, sex, race, marital status, geographic region, urbanization, socioeconomic status, and foreign country of birth are related to cancer mortality in a wealth of charts and tables; occupational data, however, are not included
