All who are interested in the trend of death rates by occupation or who have use for comparative data pertaining to the relative importance of certain specified causes of death in selected occupations will welcome these compilations. Although the tables do not contain data covering the entire United States, accurate figures are presented for a limited area. This volume may well serve as an introduction to a complete tabulation of census figures on a subject that is vital in any study of industrial hygiene and workmen's compensation. If death rates according to occupation can be used to some degree to indicate the relative risk in various industries and serve to stimulate more scientific and concerted efforts to reduce these hazards, the preparation of these data will have served a definite purpose in individual and community welfare.
