  • Description:
    The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is responsible for producing vital and health statistics for the U.S. population. The diversified program of heath surveys and inventories includes the compilation of data and statistics on environmental, social, and other health hazards as well as a wide range of health outcomes. This guide presents a summary of the NCHS data gathered during the last 29 years on work status, job descriptions, factors related to work history, work exposures and other characteristics, health status attributed to work, and work status or effects attributed to health. Most of the data are from public-use data tapes and some are in published reports. In all data systems, there is a great deal of additional health and risk factor information available for each subject. In addition, several of the surveys have been matched to the National Death Index to determine the vital status of respondents at later dates. Hence, the information listed in this guide can be linked to a wide variety of additional information.

    The main purposes of this guide are to identify NCHS data on occupation and health for the research and public health communities and encourage further use of these data bases. This listing is intended as a general guide for the user. Limited data system characteristics are described that will give the user some sense of the extent of the survey. However, it is important for users to get detailed information on the survey and questions before determining whether the data are appropriate for their particular use, NCHS references are listed that provide some of the information needed by the user. In addition, questionnaires can be obtained during the collection period for any of the surveys, allowing the user to determine whether future appropriate data will be available once the editing process is completed.
