The authors investigated the hypothesis that paternal occupational exposures at the time of conception may affect the risk of postconception events by linking records from Oslo, Norway, printers' unions and the Medical Birth Registry of Norway.
The linkage yielded 6,251 infants born during the period 1967-1986.
On the basis of job classification, fathers were categorized as to their exposure to lead and solvents.
Odds ratios were estimated by simple and stratified analysis of tabular data and logistic regression analysis, with children whose fathers were not in lead- or solvent-exposed categories being used as the reference group.
