Abstract From 1963 to 1965, the U.S. Public Health Service examined 3,726 underground Appalachian bituminous coal miners who were living in 1962. Their vital status was verified on January 1, 1973 (10 years of follow-up) and again on January 1, 1976 (14 years of follow-up). Mortality was studied after 10 years and results were published by Ortmeyer (1974) and Costello (1974, 1975). The results of a study of the mortality after 14 years are the subject of this report. The cause of death was determined from the underlying cause recorded on the death certificate. Death from all causes, ischemic heart disease, non-malignant respiratory disease (NMRD), cancer of the trachea, bronchus, and lung, digestive cancer, and accidents were studied.
