An industrial hygiene methodology developed in support of a retrospective morbidity case-control study.
An industrial hygiene methodology that was developed in support of an epidemiologic case-control study is described.
This study was conducted to investigate a potentially increased incidence of colorectal cancer among employees who worked at a unit that manufactured polypropylene by a heavy diluent process.
Retrospective epidemiologic case-control studies typically have exposure assessment problems because industrial hygiene monitoring data are often not available.
Misleading job titles are another problem that can provide a poor framework for estimating exposures.
