Abstract
I read with interest the article by Murphy and Volinn in which the authors presented data indicating that occupational low back pain has been decreasing since the beginning of the 1990s. While preparing a future research article, I independently compiled the same statistical trend. One of the three sources that Murphy and Volinn reported on was the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor (BLS/DOL). Similar to those researchers, I was also analyzing data from BLS/DOL. For this database, Murphy and Volinn focused on the 4-year period, 1992-1995. I was able to add data for the years 1996 and 1997, which had been posted on websites established by BLS/DOL.
