Abstract
One of the first steps in developing a strategy for surveillance of work-related health problems at the state level is to identify existing data sources that may be used for this purpose. This document is a compendium of such data sources in Massachusetts identified by the Occupational Health Surveillance Program in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH). It is provided as a resource for public health practitioners in Massachusetts, and also as a tool for consideration by other states. While the data sources in other states will be different, those listed here may be a helpful starting point, and the format for recording information about these sources may be useful. This document must necessarily be seen as a work in progress. Whereas it includes most relevant data sets currently maintained by MDPH, documentation of data sets maintained by other agencies is still underway. Also with advances in information technologies, new data sources, such as the proposed Massachusetts Trauma Registry, are continually being developed.
