OBJECTIVE Increase knowledge of US coal miners' respiratory health by linking data from the black lung benefits program (BLBP) and the coal workers' health surveillance program (CWHSP). METHODS BLBP claims data from 2000 through 2013 was linked to CWHSP data from 1970 through 2016. RESULTS Overall, 273,644 miners participated in CWHSP, 37,548 in BLBP, and 22,903 in both programs. Median age of miners at their time of first/only participation in CWHSP was 28 and 32 years, respectively. BLBP… CONTINUE READING
