Mortality trends for Hodgkin disease in the United States were examined from 1979 to 1988 with the use of mortality data for multiple causes of death, which were obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics.
A progressive decrease in the death rate from Hodgkin disease was observed over this period.
The decrease in death rate was greatest among white patients.
Patients who were 55 years or older had the highest death rate.
Analysis by geographic region showed decreases in each of the regions, with no significant difference among groups of states with high and low incidences of acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
