Overview

Through a collaborative project with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the National Cancer Institute, 24 State health departments have provided occupation- and industry-coded death certificate data for 1 or more years from 1984 through 1988 to the National Center for Health Statistics. The occupation, industry, and cause-of-death data for 1,062,000 white males, 139,834 black males, 438,603 white females, and 72,976 black females were analyzed using age-adjusted, race- and gender-specific proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The analysis includes 192 cause-of-death categories, 325 occupation categories, and 235 industry categories.

Results are presented for all combinations of occupation and cause of death or industry and cause of death that meet the following criteria: (1) the PMR for the aged-20-and-over group was 120, (2) the lower limit of the 95% CI of the PMR for the aged-20-and-over group exceeded 100, and (3) the observed number of deaths in the aged-20-and-over group was 10. The tables include the number of observed deaths and PMRs for the three age groups (20 and over, 20 to 64, and 65 and over).

Some findings support previously reported associations: for example, coal workers pneumoconiosis in white male mining machine operators (PMR=5,146; 95% CI=4,696–5,629) and malignant neoplasm of the lung in white male insulation workers (PMR=188; 95% CI=152–229). Other results suggest new areas for research: for example, malignant neoplasm of the esophagus in white waitresses (PMR=203; 95% CI=141–282) and cerebrovascular diseases in black farmers (male PMR=134; 95% CI=128–140; female PMR=141; 95% CI=126–157).
