  1. Surveillance around hazardous waste sites : geographic information systems and reproductive outcomes.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the potential for integrating surveillance techniques in reproductive epidemiology with geographic information system technology in order to identify populations at risk around hazardous waste sites.

    Environmental epidemiologic studies have had problems with estimating or measuring exposures to individuals, and of detecting effects when the exposure is low, but continuous.

    In addition, exposures around hazardous waste sites are complex and frequently involve chemical mixtures.

    The birth weight of human babies has been reported to be sensitive to many environmental influences.
