Abstract:

The Laredo Epidemiology Project is a study of the patterns of degenerative disease, particularly cancer, in the families of Laredo, Texas. The genealogical history of Laredo was reconstructed by the grouping of 350,000 individual church and civil vital event records into multi-generational families, with record linkage based on matching names. Mortality data from death records are mapped onto these pedigrees for analysis. This dissertation describes the construction of the data base and the logic upon which decisions were based.
