Abstract
The findings of a comparative study of occupational disease data derived from the California Doctor's First Report of Work Injury System and from the United States Department of Labor employer recording and reporting system are summarized. The study period covered July to December, 1971. Procedures used to identify and retrieve doctor's reports and to compare the two reporting systems are described. Operational characteristics of each system are reviewed along with the results of evaluation of doctor's first reports, medical reporting and follow up, and workplace hazard identification. Data also is included on the extent of information obtained from doctor's reports.
