Through a collaborative project with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the National Cancer Institute, 24 State health departments have provided occupation and industry-coded death certificate data for 1 or more years from 1984 through 1988 to the National Center for Health Statistics. The occupation, industry, and cause-of-death data for 1,062,000 white males, 139,834 black males, 438,603 white females, and 72,976 black females were analyzed using age-adjusted, race and gender specific proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The analysis includes 192 cause of death categories, 325 occupation categories, and 235 industry categories.
