Abstract
This report was the third in a series of summaries of surveillance data for various occupational respiratory diseases. Most of the data reported was derived from 1968 through 1990. Data were obtained from the Coal Workers' X-ray Surveillance Program, the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining, the Sentinel Event Notification System for Occupational Risks, the National Center for Health Statistics, the Department of Labor, the Social Security Administration, the Mine Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, the Bureau of Mines, and the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics. Data on morbidity, mortality, and occupational exposures were provided in tabular form. Major topics covered in the report included asbestosis, malignant neoplasms of the pleura, coal workers' pneumoconiosis, silicosis, pneumoconiosis due to other inorganic dust, unspecified pneumoconiosis, byssinosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and occupational asthma.
