Description

CTSWKLNGJOB indicates if the person's carpal tunnel syndrome was related to their longest-held job. This inquiry was directed at sample adults age 18 and over who are currently employed (EMPSTATSA) or were employed at some time in the past 12 months (EMPSTATWKYR), who reported having carpal tunnel syndrome in the past 12 months (CTSYR), who were first diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome at age 15 or older (CTS1STAGE), who have been told by a doctor or other health professional that their carpal tunnel syndrome was probably work related (CTSWRKRETOLD), whose current job or job in the past 12 months was not their longest-held job (MAINLONG) and was not the cause of their carpal tunnel syndrome (CTSWKCURJOB).

Sample adults who were told that their carpal tunnel syndrome was probably work related were asked follow-up questions to ascertain which and what type job their condition was connected. For a list of variables related to these questions see CTSWRKRETOLD.
