The place of residence of all cases of childhood cancer occurring in the Northern Region from 1968 to 1982 has been analysed by electoral wards. The wards have been ranked according to rate and Poisson probability. Both rankings show a wide geographical scatter throughout the region of areas with an apparent excess incidence of cancer. These areas are not confined to the Cumbrian coast.
