The mortality (1970-2002) and cancer morbidity (1971-2001) experienced by a cohort of 1,807 male and female employees from a semiconductor factory in the West Midlands (UK) have been investigated. The cohort comprised workers in employment on 1st January 1970, and workers commencing employment in the period 1970-1979. All workers had been employed for at least one month. Standardised mortality ratios (SMRs) and standardised registration ratios (SRRs) were used to assess mortality and morbidity respectively in the total cohort. Expectations for both mortality and morbidity were based on sex-, age- and calendar year specific rates for the general population of England and Wales.
