Stomach cancer trends in New Zealand were examined.
Age-standardized mortality and incidence rates have declined over the past four decades, as in other countries.
Rates have been consistently higher for men, and for Maori.
A cancer registry-based case-control study of 1016 male stomach cancer cases and 19042 male controls with other cancers was also conducted, to evaluate the relationships between stomach cancer and specific occupations.
Adjustment was made for age, ethnicity, socioeconomic level, and smoking status.
