    Data on cancer incidence and mortality in the vicinity of nuclear instaIlations in England and Wales have been published, covering the period 1959-1980.

    Several age classes and a number of cancer sites have been included.

    Systematic analysis has so far been limited to cancer mortality.

    This suggests that childhood leukemia is unusually frequent near some types of installations and the excess is greater for years 0-9 than for later ages.

    In the earlier decade, 1959-1969, there was questionable consistency of incidence reporting.
