Protocol - Occupation/Occupational History

Add to Toolkit

Protocol Name from Source:

National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, NHANES, 2005-2006; Study of Brain Tumors in Adults

Availability:

Publicly available

Description:

This protocol includes several questions about the respondent's current job, including the job title, industry, activities, when the job was started, hours spent working each week, and normal hours of the day worked. Occupation and industry entries are coded using the Standardized Occupational Classification System (SOC) and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The respondent is asked a number of questions about his longest-held job, including name of occupation, industry, types of activities performed, and length of time worked.

As an alternative, the respondent is asked specific details about every job he or she has had for 6 months or longer since he or she was 16 years old. Information obtained about each job includes: the name of the company; job title; when the job started and stopped; address of the company; whether it was full-time, part-time, or seasonal work; type of business; main activities on the job; chemicals and materials handled; and tools and equipment used.

Protocol:

Note: in many situations, a complete occupational history is not feasible, so the current occupation and longest-held job are the primary measures. A complete occupational history should be captured for investigations of chronic diseases or work-related injuries.

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer should be familiar with job titles used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau. The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews*.

* There are multiple modes to administer this question (e.g., paper-and-pencil and computer-assisted interviews).

Equipment Needs

While the source instrument was developed to be administered by computer, the PhenX Working Group acknowledges that these questions can be administered in a non-computerized format (i.e., paper-and-pencil instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer or handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements

Requirement CategoryRequired
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individualYes
Major equipmentNo
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collectionNo
Specialized trainingYes

Mode of Administration

Self-administered

Life Stage:

Adult

Specific Instructions:

Respondents are not likely to recall all of their occupations and details about those occupations. The interviewer should probe respondents to get the most accurate information possible.

The instructions under item 4 indicate to “enter name of business or industry,” but this seems redundant with the “name of employer” in item 3. For clarification, the interviewer should “enter the type of business or industry,” not the name of the business.

Research Domain Information

Release Date:

May 31, 2016

Definition

Questions about the respondent’s current occupation and longest-held job. If appropriate, a complete work history is obtained.

Purpose

Occupation relates to a person’s socioeconomic status and health. Descriptive data about the name of employer, occupation, common activities, hours worked, and length of time at the job are associated with potential health risks of the occupation.

Standardized industry and occupational codes can be used to compare findings with other studies.

Longest-held job and occupational history provide historical information about previous or long-term occupations that may have led to injury or exposed the respondent to hazardous chemicals that could lead to chronic health conditions.

Selection Rationale

The questions about the current job capture valuable information such as the hours worked last week, shift of work, and basic information about the job that can be used as the precursor to other occupational questions.

The occupational history protocol chosen captures the respondent’s entire occupational history and details about each job. Because some early life or short-term jobs may have been ones with the most exposures, the PhenX Working Group recommends a complete occupational history.
