An epidemiologic investigation of the relationship between DBCP contamination in drinking water and birth rates in Fresno County, California



An epidemiologic investigation of the relationship between DBCP contamination in drinking water and birth rates in Fresno County, California



American Journal of Public Health 78(1): 43-46



This report describes an epidemiologic investigation of the relationship between DBCP (dibromochloropropane) contamination in drinking water and birth rates between 1978 and 1982 in Fresno County, California. Census tracts in the county were categorized according to DBCP level in their drinking water. Standardized birth ratios and relative birth ratios (adjusted for age, race, percent Hispanic, and parity) were calculated for these census tracts. No relation between birth ratios and DBCP contamination in drinking water was found.
