Abstract The study of mortality experience was based upon data from membership records of the AFL-CIO United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America. Included are analyzed death claims for 1969 and 1970, and non-claim deaths for 1970 and 1971. The prime analytical method used was the standardized mortality ratio (SMR). Examined are current mortality patterns in a large wood-exposed population, with particular attention directed to possible wood cancer relationships. Severe areas of excessive mortality among Union members are identified, supporting the hypothesis that wood contains cancer causing agents.
