Abstract:

Data have recently become available that can be used to shed light on the determinants of rare but catastrophic diseases such as leukemia. These data are accounting-type records from the unemployment insurance systems in particular states. Because these data cover most workers whether unemployed or not, they provide the huge samples needed to analyze these diseases. Their combination with health data and their role relative to other data sets are described in this paper. Author
