Pilot Study for the National Survey of the Mining Population (NIOSH)

A pilot study to evaluate the effectiveness of recruitment materials questionnaires and survey procedures developed for a nation-wide survey of the mining population by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The National Survey of the Mining Population will be a national survey of mines and their employees for each of five mining commodities (i.e. coal metal non-metal stone and sand and gravel). Information captured from this study is intended to guide improvements to maximize the performance of the various components of the full-scale commodity-based study.
