Abstract. Evaluation of the genetic risk of exposure to ionizing radiation rests on a variety of experiences. These include (1) exposure to diagnostic and therapeutic doses of X-ray and radioactive materials such as radium or cobalt, (2) occupationally incurred exposures, e. g., in uranium mining or the maintenance of nuclear reactors, (3) geographic areas with “high” natural or man- made. 10 VITAL STATISTICS 2â A USES IN HEALTH POLICY AND HEALTH RESEARCH 2â A.1 Social Inequalities in Health Nancy Krieger (Harvard School of Public Health) spoke on the use of vital statistics and related data to monitor health inequities in the United Statesâ studies of trends in health and health care as they are related to socioeconomic. studies of radiation industry workers and studies of people receiving large doses of Radiation can damage health in ways other than cancer. It is less likely, but damage to genetic material in reproductive cells can cause genetic mutations, which could be passed on to future generations.

The article describes the non-statistical uses of vital records and also the demographic uses of vital statistics in the following aspects: (a) for policy making, that is, to form the basis for policy guidance, planning and projections; (b) for administration, that is, to monitor current demographic trends and action programmes; and (c) for research, that is, to support the scientific study of.   Linking vital statistics data to data on lifestyle habits, environment and social condition, and possibly genetic properties, forms the basis for the follow-up of cohort studies. This may be the most important use of vital statistics in present-day epidemiological research.
