Abstract This report is one of a series of reports developed to describe the prevalence of disability and morbidity among current workers within these eight industry sectors. Survey data from the years 19972007 were used to describe the five aspects of workers health, including (1) health status, (2) physical activity limitations or disability, (3) prevalent chronic conditions (cancer, hypertension, heart disease, asthma, diabetes, and severe psychological distress); (4) access to and use of health care services diseases; and (5) health risk factors or behaviors. The report was developed as a descriptive resource to supplement ongoing research, and guide occupational health research and research-to-practice activities within industry.
