The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that unexpectedly high unemployment in a community is associated with reduced odds that registered breast tumors are local.
The hypothesis was tested with data from San Francisco for the 132 months beginning with January 1983.
Registered breast tumors were less likely to be local during periods to unexpectedly high umemployment (8% less likely among non-Hispanic White women and 24% less likely among African-American women).
Job loss may restrict access to health services.
Fear of job loss may also distract women from breast self-examination and the identification of suspicious breast signs.
