Abstract : The historical prospective study follows some 306,000 airmen medically certified during 1965 through December 1969 to observe prevalence and incidence of disease among these airmen. It also considers possible contribution of medical factors to attrition of airmen from an active status as a follow-up to a previous FAA study concerning characteristics of airmen involved in attrition. The study provides quantification for questions concerning frequency of examination by age, incidence of pathology in relation to frequency of examination, and a comparison of the attrition sub-group with the still active airmen sub-group with respect to prevalence, incidence, and class of medical certificate issued. Basic descriptive epitemiologic data are also provided. (Modified author abstract)
