  Abstract: The association between cervix cancer   and cigarette smoking was examined among 332 white cases and 1725   white controls. Cases were of lower socioeconomic status (SES)   and smoked more than controls. After adjustment for both age and   SES, no significant association was observed between cervix   cancer and cigarette smoking. Many variables related both to   cigarette smoking and to known risk factors for cervix cancer are   sources of confounding and inadequate control for these   variations may cause an overestimation of the effect of smoking.
