International Information System on Occupational Exposure to Carcinogens
- CAREX is a MS Access database which contains estimates of the numbers of workers occupationally exposed to carcinogens by industry in 15 previous countries of the European Union (exposure data from 1990-93) and in four of the ten countries that joined the EU in 2004 (exposure data from 1997).
- CAREX contains also information on industrial distribution of the employed, summarised exposure data, numbers of exposed by occupation, definitions of carcinogenic exposure, descriptions of the estimation procedures and bibliographic references.
- This CAREX website provides descriptive reports and data tables on carcinogen exposure. There may be slight differences between the reports and tables because some workforce figures or exposure estimates have been updated to tables after the publication of the reports. Most figures in tables are based on calculation procedures and should therefore be rounded to the precision of 1 or 2 integers only.
