NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SUPPLEMENT

Comparison of All NORA Sectors


Background

In 2010, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), recognizing a growing need for current, national estimates on work-related health and safety conditions, sponsored an occupational health supplement (OHS) to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).

The interviewed sample adult component of the 2010 NHIS consisted of 27,157 persons, of whom approximately 17,524 had been employed in the past 12 months. The sample is designed and weighted to produce national estimates.

For more information on the NHIS and to access the 2010 NHIS data, please refer to the following website: (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhis.htm)

Purpose

This profile summarizes the 2010 NHIS-OHS data by National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) sector through figures and tables in an effort to provide sector leaders with information so they can better understand how the health and exposure burdens in their sector compare to other sectors. Definitions of NORA sectors can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/nora/sector.html.

This profile summarizes the prevalence of selected health outcomes; work organization factors; and psychosocial, physical and chemical exposures among workers by sector.
