The aim of the study was to analyse the pattern of lung cancer mortality from 1960 to 1989 and to predict lung cancer mortality for 1990-1999 for males and females aged =30 years in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
The mortality pattern of lung cancer was examined and predicted using republic-age-period-cohort models.
Trends in lung cancer mortality were upward for both sexes over the study period.
In the early 1960s, lung cancer mortality in Slovak males was much lower than that in Czech males, but since the late 1960s lung cancer mortality in males increased more rapidly in Slovakia than in the Czech Republic.
