New Datasets added to CEDR!

The analytic file, MCG19A01 the follow-up mortality analysis of the Mallinckrodt uranium processing workers between 1942 and 2012, was recently loaded to CEDR. The supporting working dataset, MCG19W01, was also loaded to CEDR. These datasets are immediately accessible to authorized users.

Researcher Spotlight

John D. Boice, Jr., Sc.D. “CEDR is a remarkable national resource! It is a free open access collection of most of the important epidemiologic health studies of DOE workers from the 1940s to today, such as Los Alamos and Hanford. The files are available to any investigator interested in obtaining and analyzing these worker studies on radiation health effects. I have contributed studies to CEDR for over 20 years and most recently this November 2019 on the Mallinckrodt Chemical Works. For the study of a Million U.S. Workers and Veteran (MWS), we have relied heavily on and benefited greatly from the information in CEDR to conduct our studies of nearly 20 DOE worker cohorts."

CEDR data enabled us to develop radiation exposure profiles for workers whose monitoring data were missing or incomplete for the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program. Dr. Dick Toohey, ORAU
