Abstract

PASTORELO, Edmur Flávio  and  GOTLIEB, Sabina Léa Davidson. Cancer mortality in the State of S. Paulo, Brazil - 1970/1972. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1978, vol.12, n.1, pp. 1-15. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101978000100001.

The authors describe the distribution of cancer deaths according to the main anatomical sites of the primary tumor in the eleven Administrative Regions of the State of São Paulo, Brazil, during the period 1970/1972. Although having the same homogeneous pattern of cancer mortality of the State, some Regions show coexistence of tumours tipically of underdeveloped and developed areas. This could be explained by the fact that in such Regions there are some cities in a stage of high industrial development.

Keywords : Neoplasms [S. Paulo, Brazil]; Mortality.
