Current Economic Burden

About the Economic Burden Study

The economic analyses for the Burden of Occupational Cancer study were led by the Institute for Work & Health. The analyses look at healthcare costs, productivity and output costs, and quality of life costs at a societal level. The economic estimates represent the total lifetime costs of newly diagnosed cancers in the year 2011.

The results provide an economic argument for investing in prevention. The economic burden of each cancer case goes beyond the cost of treatment, impacting individuals and families, workplaces, and society.
