Introduction. Sustainable development of territories affected by the Chernobyl disaster, require a number of managerial decisions, to reduce the level of radiophobia and psycho-emotional stress in society. Aim. To study the relationship between the indicators of the incidence of hemoblastosis with the density of contamination of territories with radioactive elements. Material and methods. An ecological population epidemiological study based on the calculation of the correlation coefficients of the incidence rates of hemoblastosis with the density of radioactive contamination. Results. There is no connection between the incidence of hemoblastosis and the density of radioactive contamination of territories. A statistically significant risk of multiple myeloma is observed in areas with a 137Cs contamination density of 1.0-4.99 Ci/km2. There was a statistically significant strong (r> 0.95) correlation between the crude incidence rate and standardized by age, sex and place of residence incidence ratio. The presence of strong correlations between these indicators give the possibility to use crude incidence rate instead of SIR in the analysis of morbidity by rayons. Conclusions. No correlation was found between the incidence of hemoblastosis and the density of radioactive contamination.
