The study is based on a collaboration between the Cancer Registry of Norway, the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority, and National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB, UK).
The association between indoor radon exposure and lung cancer was studied in 427 municipalities.
NRPB detectors were sent to 10,000 householders, and 7,500 of the detectors were returned.
Data from a nation-wide survey of smoking habits in 1965-1965 were available.
Data on asbestos exposure were also used in a regression analysis.
The reporting to the Cancer Registry of all new cases of cancer is fairly complete, as hospital departments and institutes of pathology are obliged to report all cancer cases.
