  1. A respiratory survey in a black Johannesburg workforce.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    The burden and determinants of airway disease in the population of southern Africa, which is currently undergoing rapid, often uncontrolled, urbanisation and industrialisation, are unknown.

    Previous surveys have focused on specific occupational groups and few have included women.

    This paper describes the respiratory status in a 30% probability sample of 206 men and 203 women drawn from an urban black johannesburg workforce of almost 1500, all working for an educational institution.

    Methods

    Subjects answered a respiratory questionnaire and performed spirometric tests.
