  1. Note: N = 46,720. N catchment areas = 55. Reported are OLS estimates. Standard errors within brackets. Year dummies and a constant term are included in all specifications. Included in specification (2)-(5) are dummy variables for cancer type. Included in specifications (3)-(5) are dummy variables for age. Included in specifications (4) and (5) are dummy variables for missing information on marital status and education. Included in specification (5) are dummy variables for industry. */**/*** statistically significance at the 10/5/1 percent level respectively.
