"The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) has worked collaboratively with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to develop a set of occupational health indicators (OHIs). A good indicator anticipates early problem areas for attention. Outcomes of a system that utilizes indicators are ably demonstrated in this document, and serves as an important milestone in the progress towards a national system of occupational health surveillance. A Workgroup of state CSTE representatives went through a multi-year process of defining 19 OHIs. Thirteen states then agreed to pilot the generation of data from 2000 for these 19 OHIs, and this document presents the results of that pilot. The data provide a baseline from which comparisons and trends over time can be tracked."
