The aim of this report is to update data and statistics on cancer mortality in Switzerland from 1950 to 1984 by sex, age group and calendar period 1. Aggregate death certification data for the five-year period 198589 are now presented. The materials and methods are similar to those previously utilized 1. Briefly, death certification numbers by cause and(More)
Robust Huber type regression and testing of linear hypotheses are adapted to statistical analysis of parallel line and slope ratio assays. They are applied in the evaluation of results of several experiments carried out in order to compare and validate alternatives to animal experimentation based on embryo and cell cultures. Computational procedures(More)
Swiss death certification data over the period 1951-1984 for total cancer mortality and 30 major cancer sites in the population aged 25 to 74 years were analysed using a log-linear Poisson model with arbitrary constraints on the parameters to isolate the effects of birth cohort, calendar period of death and age. The overall pattern of total cancer mortality(More)
Trends in age-specific and age-standardized death certification rates from all ischaemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease in Switzerland have been analysed for the period 1969–87, i.e. since the introduction of the Eighth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases for coding causes of death. For coronary heart disease, overall(More)
Switzerland is a multilingual country located between Germany, France and Italy, which differ by dietary habits and related outcomes. We explored differences in food consumption as well as compliance to the Swiss food-based dietary guidelines (FBDG) across the German-, French-, and Italian-speaking regions. The 2014-2015 nationwide cross-sectional survey(More)
In order to project trends in mortality from 11 major cancer sites in Switzerland to the end of the current century, a log-linear Poisson age/period/cohort model with arbitrary constraints on the parameters was used, fitted to the observed rates for the period 1950–84. One projection was based on the assumption of a total absence of change in the effect of(More)
Trends in mortality from all neoplasms and major cancer sites in Switzerland among populations aged between 20 and 44 years are presented. In men total cancer mortality was approximately constant around 270/106 between 1951 and 1965, but declined appreciably thereafter to 217 per million in 1980–1989. The overall fall was 20%. The pattern of trends was(More)
