Projected mesothelioma incidence in men in New South Wales
Objectives: Based on observed numbers of incident mesotheliomas since 1972, to predict future numbers in men in New South Wales. Methods: The incidence of mesothelioma was modelled in two ways. First by using an age/birth cohort model, and second by using a model based on potential exposure to asbestos in terms of age and calendar year. The latter model included a term for clearance of asbestos fibres from the lungs, and a term for diagnostic fraction. The age and calendar year model was based...[Show more]
