Birth-cohort analysis is of particular importance for gastric cancer since migrant studies have indicated that early life experiences play a dominant role in the occurrence of the disease.
However, none of the birth-cohort analyses conducted in various countries have provided information on variation in the birth-cohort phenomenon.
To examine the interaction of birth cohort and urbanization, mortality data for gastric cancer between 1971 and 1990 in differentially urbanized areas in Taiwan were analysed.
Traditional birth-cohort analysis and age-period-cohort (APC) analysis were employed in the study.
The identification problem inherent in the APC analysis was circumvented by the « individual record » method.
