Extension of the World Trade Center Health Registry

Project Number
New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
4 years


During the funding period, Registry staff will conduct priority epidemiological analyses using data from the Wave 1 (2003-04), Wave 2 (2006-08), and Wave 3 (2011-12) surveys, including analyses to assess risk factors for the development or persistence of serious respiratory and mental health conditions over time. A Wave 4 survey will be conducted using multiple survey modes to ascertain the health status and 9/11-related healthcare needs of the cohort 13-14 years after 9/11. The Registry will also extend the assessment of cancer and mortality incidence through 10 years post-9/11, investigate potential emerging health conditions through public health surveillance and follow-up studies (including collaborations with the WTC Health Program and other external researchers), and continue outreach to encourage enrollees to access monitoring and treatment through the WTC Health Program.
