  1. Note: Referent group in the prior analysis was comprised of never exposed cases (n = 739) and controls (n = 1,085). The referent group in the current analysis was comprised of never exposed cases (n = 471) and controls (n = 645). Both adjusted analyses controlled for age at diagnosis or index year, vital status at interview, family history of breast cancer, personal history of breast cancer (before current diagnosis or index year), age at first live birth or stillbirth, occupational exposure to PCE, and study of origin.
