National Occupational Respiratory Mortality System (NORMS)

Graphical depiction of the NORMS logo The National Occupational Respiratory Mortality System (NORMS) is a data-storage and interactive data-retrieval system developed and maintained by NIOSH. NORMS is a compilation of national mortality data obtained annually (since 1968, unless otherwise indicated) from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) multiple cause-of-death data files. Deaths from these conditions are defined on the basis of International Classification of Diseases (ICD) coding categories. NORMS compiles mortality data for the total number of U.S. residents identified with any of the previously mentioned respiratory conditions listed on the entity axis or underlying cause-of-death code fields as well as for the subset of decedents where the respiratory condition is listed only as a contributing cause-of-death on the entity axis. Additional information is available by age group (0-14, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74, 75-84, or 85 years and older), race (white, black, or other), Hispanic origin , gender, and state and county of residence at the time of death. Detailed industry and occupation crosswalks are provided for comparing the Census 1990 Industry and Occupation Classification System codes generated by Industry/Occupation Database I queries with the Census 2000 Industry and Occupation Classification System codes generated by Industry/Occupation Database II queries.
