Abstract(in English) The Swedish investigation of epidemiology, which has been carried out on cancers in children residing near high-voltage power lines in and around Stockholm County during 1960-1985, shows us the conclusion that there is significant association between the historical magnetic fields calculated and childhood cancer. Employing its data of the stratum-specific analyses, we can find out the following facts on cases associated with the magnetic fields: none in children diagonosed 1960-74 in and arround Stockholm County; ones, diagonosed 1975-85 only arround its County. They show that the association is not consistent in the periods and areas considered. Therefore, the association is not a causal relation, and the conclution which suggests that the same association is to be observed everywhere is not valid .
