Abstract

The majority of investigations into possible relationships between smoking and lung cancer have been `person oriented' or `sample oriented'. That is, they have generally been either longitudinal surveys of particular groups of people taken over a long period so that causes of death may be compared with smoking habits, or investigations into samples of death records linked to smoking habits during that person's lifetime. This investigation is based on Official or other published statistics relating to the population in general, and is a hunt for an appropriate time-correlation between cigarette smoking and mortality due to lung cancer. It could be stated that this is a `population oriented' rather than a `sample oriented' study.
