The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) sponsored an occupational health supplement to the 2010 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS-OHS) to provide current, national estimates on the prevalence of common workplace exposures and commonly work-related health conditions. 

The NHIS is an annual, in-person health survey and the principal source of information about the health of the civilian, non-institutionalized, household population of the United States. The survey is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The NHIS sample is designed and weighted to produce national estimates.

The questionnaires, data, and additional details about the NHIS survey methods are available at NHIS Logo

The NHIS questionnaires consist of  core sets of questions that remain relatively unchanged from year to year, and supplemental questions that vary from year to year to collect additional data pertaining to current health issues of national importance (e.g., occupational health).  The 2010 NHIS-OHS questions were embedded within the Sample Adult Questionnaire, and were administered to 17,524 adults who had been employed in the past 12 months.
