NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY: OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SUPPLEMENT

Site Logo

There are many ways work can affect people’s health and some jobs carry more risk than others. In 2010*, NIOSH sponsored a series of work-related questions in the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). Using these questions, we gathered information to estimate the prevalence of workplace exposures and common work-related health conditions within the United States.

Within this site, you can learn more about the NHIS and the NIOSH Occupational Health Supplement (OHS) questions, what we learned about worker health issues in different industries, and more information about related resources. There are links to many charts that show how select issues that affect worker health vary among broad industry groups and how specific industries or occupations (job types) within each broad industry group compare to each other.

*Another series of work-related questions are being asked as part of the 2015 NHIS. Estimates based on these new data will be added to this site once they are available.
