Figure 2 – Relationship between the 15-year cumulative mortality (male + female) of mesothelioma (1994–2008) and the cumulative use of asbestos (1920–1970) weighted by the size of national populations in 36 countries with data for both mesothelioma and asbestos use. Asbestos use for countries without mesothelioma frequency data is indicated along the x-axis. Reproduced and modified from Park et al., 2011, with permission from the publisher.
