Planning for Delivery of Occupational Health Services Under Public Law 93-641 in Rhode Island: Volume II: The Occupational Mortality Study, Rhode Island 1968-1972.
NIOSH 1980 Apr:295 pages
Mortality patterns of about 43,000 Rhode Island residents were analyzed. Death certificates from 1968 to 1972 were examined by occupation, industry, sex, age, and cause of death. Proportionate mortality ratios were calculated by age and compared with findings of other occupational and industrial mortality studies. The present study identified 48 occupational categories with elevated mortality ratios. The authors recommend epidemiological and mortality studies of each of the 48 occupations. More sensitive indicators of employee health status should be developed, and the scope of the present study should be expanded to include all mortality data available in Rhode Island since 1973.
