Incidence of malignant mesothelioma of the pleura in Québec and Canada from 1984 to 2007, and projections from 2008 to 2032.
An age-cohort regression was used to make projections for 2008–2032.Average rates of malignant mesothelioma of the pleura (MMP) in Québec men and women were significantly higher than in Canada-excluding-Québec. Projected rates peak between 2003 and 2012 in all four study populations and decline thereafter. The higher MMP rates and observed/projected time patterns in Québec men are consistent with past asbestos production and occupational exposures. The excess in Québec women may also be explained by domestic and, for some, by neighborhood exposures.
