Útdráttur

Certain diseases and symptoms carry an overrepresentation of cancer. To be able to measure the strength of such an association it is necessary to be able to predict cancer development in the group being observed. A computer program for computers running under the MS DOS operating system has been developed for this purpose. The program is written in the CLIPPER programming language. The estimates are based on incidence and prevalence data from the Swedish Cancer Registry for the years 1958 to 1986. The program also computes confidence intervals based on the Poisson distribution. The results can be printed out or exported to other programs for further analysis.
