For sample adults who missed zero or more days of work due to a significant repetitive strain injury in the past 3 months or refused to say or don't know if they did (INJREPSGMSWK), INJREPSGCHWK reports whether they made a major change in their work activities, such as taking on fewer hours or lighter duties, due to significant repetitive strain injury.

Before the first question in the repetitive strain injury section, respondents were told:

[This] question is about repetitive strain injuries. By this, we mean injuries caused by repeating the same movement over an extended period. Examples include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, or tendonitis.

INJREPSGCHWK is collected as part of the rotating core NHIS questions on repetitive strain injuries, fielded for two consecutive years every three years. For other core repetitive strain injury and injury-related variables, please see INJANY.


There are no comparability issues.
