Abstract The relationship between paternal exposures to carbon disulfide and pregnancy experience was studied in a population of 540 workers and their wives (236 exposed and 304 unexposed). Patterns of fetal loss and births and of time between live births were examined by comparing pregnancies conceived after paternal exposure to carbon disulfide to pregnancies occurring in an unexposed population. Exposure was analyzed in several ways: (1) preliminary comparisons considered the presences or absence of exposure, (2) carbon disulfide exposure was considered as a continuous variable to examine possible dose-response relationships, and (3) exposure levels were categorized without a ranking of exposure and allowed comparison of outcomes in each exposure category directly with the outcomes in the unexposed group.
