Melanoma: AF not determined
  1. Abbreviations: AF=attributable fraction; PAH=polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon.
  2. a Totals are the product sums and are not therefore equal to the sums of the separate estimates of AF, deaths and registrations for each agent. The difference is especially notable where the constituent AFs are large.
