Worker Health Charts

Musculoskeletal Health (NHIS) Charts
National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2004 - 2013

These charts show the prevalence among workers of ever being diagnosed with arthritis. See the data dictionary (URL) for the definition of arthritis.

When charting by occupation or industry, you may choose between adjusted or unadjusted results. When charting by demographic variables, the “Advanced” button will allow you to either “filter” to see results for a single industry, or “group” to see results for multiple industries. Hovering the mouse pointer over the chart bars will show more information or allow you to drill down to more detailed industries or occupations (if available).

National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2004 - 2013

The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is an annual, in-person health survey and the principal source of information about the health of the civilian, non-institutionalized, household population of the United States. The survey is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The NHIS sample is designed and weighted to produce national estimates. NIOSH uses data from the NHIS to estimate the prevalence of various health conditions and health behaviors among US workers. The charts available here are based on NHIS data from 2004-2013. See the Core questions included in the Worker Health Charts (https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/nhis/data2004-2013.html).
