The relationship between cancer and socioeconomic position is examined for men using data from three sources -the Whitehall Study of London civil servants, the OPCS Longitudinal Study and the Registrar General's Decennial Supplement.
Mortality from, or registration for, malignant neoplasms was higher overall in lower socioeconomic groups.
There was considerable variation in the strength, and to a lesser extent direction, of the association of specific cancer sites and socioeconomic position within each of the studies.
However, between the studies the relationships between socioeconomic position and the particular cancers were very similar.
