    Article - En anglais

    Cancer mortality risks for individuals who were employed at nuclear facilities in Tarapur and for their respective family members with whom they lived were examined.

    Cancer deaths that occured in this population between 1971 and 1988 were compact with death rates published by the Bombay City Cancer Registry.

    Risks were expressed as standardized mortality ratios (SMRs), which were computed by dividing the observed number of deaths by the expected number of deaths and multiplying this value times 100.
