  1. Self-reported health problems among Swedish miners one year after unemployment.

    Article - En anglais

    Unemployment is considered to be a public health concern since deterioration in the health of the unemployed is often anticipated.

    However, for some groups, such as miners, unemployment might improve health due to a cessation of potentially harmful occupational exposures.

    This study evaluates the health of 79 miners in one Swedish iron-ore mine, and 226 age-matched controls from the general population, during one year after the closure of the mine.

    The participants received a questionnaire regarding medical history and subjective symptoms at the beginning of the study period, and after one year.

    Statistically significant negative effects on self-reported health attributable to unemployment were not found, although neuropsychiatric symptoms were more common among the unemployed miners.

    The miners reported a statistically significant improvement in grip force (p=0.031).

    They had a significantly higher prevalence of symptoms associated with mining related exposures when compared with the population controls ; pain in the upper extremities [relative risk (RR)=2.27,95% confidence interval (Cl)=1.44-3.59), back pain (RR=1.84 ; Cl=1.23-2.75), vasospastic disease of the fingers (RR=2.05 ; Cl=1.18-3.57) and obstructive respiratory symptoms (attacks of dyspnea and wheezing.

    RR=3.67 ; Cl=1.16-11.6).
