We found an increased risk of childhood leukaemia with higher levels of inward migration, particularly from outside the region (rate ratio=1.9, 95%Cl:1.2 - 2.9, P<0.01). This significant effect was observed only in urban areas, although a marked but non-significant effect was seen in affluent, rural areas. © 2002 Cancer Research UK.
