Users can access data about mortality statistics related to occupation exposures.
The National Occupational Mortality Survey (NOMS) is maintained by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The data base offers age-adjusted proportionate mortality ratios and summary statistics for roughly 500 occupational groups and 300 industry groups.
Users can search proportionate mortality ratio (PMR) data by sex, race, cause of death, industry (using census industry codes) or occupation, and age categories (15-54, 15-64, 65+). Additionally users can access over 3,000 premade charts and tables for quick access to selected chronic disease data. Twenty-two site-specific cancers and 17 cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, diabetes, and renal disease multiple cause PMRs are presented for the largest fifteen industries in each of eight sectors: agriculture, forestry, fishing; mining; construction; manufacturing, wholesale & retail trade; transportation, warehousing & utilities; healthcare & social assistance; and services.
The NOMS database presents the results of a multiple cause death analysis of death by industry based on data from more than 11,000,000 death records for adults, race and gender combined, age 18 and above that died during the years 1984-1998 in twenty-seven U.S. states. The states are Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Data acquired from data searches is available for download in HTML or Comma-Separated Value (CSV) format. Premade charts are available for download in excel.
