Occupational health in the United States is reviewed in the 1975 Chart Book of the American Public Health Association. Statistics are presented in tabular and graphical form which describe the dimensions, jobs, insurance coverage, unionization, and earnings of the working population. Statistics are provided which indicate the social and economic costs of occupational disease and injury and the prevalence of disease and injury by sex, race, and ethnic origin. Statistics also show the special risks incurred by occupational groups such as rubber, asbestos (1332214), and vinyl chloride (75014) workers. Finally, the institutional responses of government and private industry to occupational health and safety issues are tabulated.
