Notes

Abstract: Kidney and renal pelvic cancers are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in Texas. According to the National Cancer Institute's (2007) state cancer profiles, Texas ranked second nationwide in the incidence of kidney and renal pelvic cancer and the presence of Pliocene lignite deposits. This study investigates the relationship between the presence of Pliocene lignite deposits and age-adjusted mortality rates for kidney and renal pelvic cancers, defined as ICD189.0 and ICD189.1, respectively, in Texas from 1980 to 1998. Age-adjusted mortality rates for kidney and renal pelvic cancers are above average in Texas counties that contain lignite deposits. This study also probes the role of such factors as race, gender, and socioeconomic status on mortality rates for these cancers.
