A large male employee population with continuous low level work exposures to methylene chloride for up to 30 years was examined for mortality experience using non- concurrent prospective and proportionate mortality techniques. Mortality of the study group was consistent with industrial controls and less than the New York State general population. Life table analysis of the 1964 methylene chloride exposed cohort was followed through 7976 and demonstrated age group specific probabilities of 13 year survivorship equal to or better than that of three control male populations: Kodak Park, New York State, and United States.
