  • PurposeThe purpose of this study was to test whether population mortality rates from heart, respiratory and kidney disease were higher as a function of levels of Appalachian coal mining after control for other disease risk factors. [...] Key Method Forms of chronic illness were contrasted with acute illness. Poisson regression models were analyzed separately for male and female mortality rates.Expand Abstract
