Health Status

This topic includes charts that visualize data related to the health status of workers.

Available Charts

Select the type of chart below that you wish to create.

Health Status (BRFSS)
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2013-2015

This chart shows the prevalence among workers of identifying their general health status as fair or poor. See the data dictionary for definitions of Health Status.

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).

Please note that BRFSS population estimates are not national estimates, as data are limited to those states that collected industry and occupation information.

Health Status and Physical Activity Limitations (NHIS)
National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2004 - 2013

Health Status and Physical Activity Limitations charts are based on data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), a survey that collects data on a broad range of health topics through personal household interviews. These charts include workers’ responses to questions related to health status (2+ Bed Days or 6+ work days lost due to injury or illness in the past year, Fair or Poor Self-Rated Health, Health Declined in Past Year) and physical activity limitations (Any Functional Limitation from Any Condition).

Healthcare Utilization/Access (BRFSS)
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2013-2015

This chart shows the prevalence among workers of having no health care coverage. See the data dictionary for definitions of Healthcare Utilization/Access.

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).

Please note that BRFSS population estimates are not national estimates, as data are limited to those states that collected industry and occupation information.

Healthcare Utilization/Access (NHIS)
National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2004 - 2013

Healthcare Utilization/Access charts are based on data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), a survey that collects data on a broad range of health topics through personal household interviews. These charts include workers’ responses to questions related to healthcare utilization in the past year (visit to a primary care provider, contact with a dentist, emergency room visit, surgery), lifetime utilization (ever being tested for HIV), and access to healthcare (having a usual place to go for medical care, no health insurance coverage, offered health insurance by employer).
