Trends of incidence of leukemias in the krakow region in the years 1951 1968

Trends of incidence of leukemias in the krakow region in the years 1951 1968

Based on 1846 registered cases of leukemia in the Krakow [Poland] region in 1951-1968, the general trends of incidence in successive calendar years were characterized. The analysis was made for the whole Krakow region (i.e., city of Krakow and Krakow region) and separately for the city of Krakow. Incidence of all types of leukemia (chronic granulocytic leukemia, CGL; chronic lymphocytic leukemia, CLL; and acute leukemia, AL) was determined jointly and separately in men and women, in rural and urban inhabitants and in 3 age groups (under 15, 15-44 and 45 and over). Mathematical characterization of significance of observed trends was conducted by the test of significance of the coefficient of regression in different systems. Statistically significant rising trends of incidence of leukemias concern the whole population of the Krakow region, except incidence in the 1st age group, i.e., under 15 yr, for which the coefficient of regression is not statistically significant. In the city of Krakow itself, only the rising trends of incidence of all leukemias, CGL, in women and in the 3rd age group (i.e., over 45 yr) are statistically significant.
