Mesothelioma typically develops 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos and to date a countries culmative use of asbestos in prior decades has been found to clearly and reliability predict numbers of Mesothelioma deaths in countries reporting mortality data.
However, 33 countries reported no Mesothlioma data. This was said to be the most important finding of the survey. Countries such as Russia, Kazahkstan, China and India which use asbestos at  substantial levels reported no cases of the disease. The survey estimated hat 38,900 deaths from Mesothelioma could have occurred in these countries during the 15 year period that the survey looked at.
It makes for interesting reading.
